Summer’s Still Simmering
By Katie McFadden
Labor Day may be the un-
official end of summer, but
you wouldn’t know it locally.
There’s still plenty of summer
fun left.
Hurricane Hermine may
have put a damper on the hol-
iday, but there’s still another
shot to enjoy guarded beach-
es. Earlier this summer, the
City announced that the beach
season would be extended for
an extra week. The beaches
will be staffed with lifeguards
until Sunday, September 11.
Just be aware that guarded
beaches may be limited, as
many lifeguards have returned
to school.
The concessions are made
for summer fun and it will
continue for a fewmore weeks.
Caracas and Brothers at Beach
106th are open daily through
the weekend and will host
music events including Three
Sheets to the Wind starting at
6 p.m. on Friday, September 9,
a Beachfront Bugout including
several performers at 6 p.m. on

Timba Beach Party on Sunday.
The concession will also be
open every weekend through
October from noon to 9 p.m.
The Beach 97th Concession

p.m. Show off your skills for

said they’ll be open occasion-
ally throughout the month but
