Chincoteague Island makes for a wonderful summertime playground with lots of sun and fun for all. Once the sun goes down, the fun doesn’t go with it – Robert Reed Park provides plenty to do with a series of movies and music at the dock all summer long!
There’s so much to do on Chincoteague Island – cruises, biking, shopping, beach-combing, the wild ponies, visiting Assateague lighthouse, and more. Once the sun goes down, it’s time for a good dinner, refreshments, and … there are still many choices!
An evening stroll along the beach can be lovely, or you can spend a quiet night in. For those looking for a touch more fun, however, there’s always Music at the Dock or Summer Cinema in the Park, both held at Robert Reed Park during the summer.
Music at the Dock is a series of free, public concerts held along the Waterfront each summer in downtown Chincoteague. Each concert presents a different style of music, meaning there’s a little something for everyone as the series progresses. Bring a chair or blanket and relax on the park’s lawn as you listen. What fun!
Music at the Dock 2016 has already presented a few shows but the remaining schedule is as follows:
Alex & Shiloh
Saturday, August 6th, 7pm
Alex & Shiloh are a brother and sister duo that applies their combined musicianship and vocals to a bottomless repertoire of classic rock and original compositions. A regional favorite that’ll get you up on your feet.
C.A.I.S.O. Steeldrum Band
Saturday, August 27th, 7pm
C.A.I.S.O. – the Caribbean American International Steel Orchestra – is the hottest steel drum band in the DC area. They perform festive music that draws from Calypso, Soca, Reggae, and Latin Jazz. A huge hit at last summer’s Music at the Dock concert – not to be missed!
Another draw to the park is Summer Cinema in the Park. Five, free summer films shown at dusk in Robert Reed Waterfront Park. Bring a blanket or lawn chair for a fun evening under the stars. Enjoy popcorn and cold drinks at old-fashioned prices.
