The Twilight Dance Series – It has been a Southern California tradition for twenty-two years.

Putting together a small amount of seed money to start the event, the City staged the first concerts under a large blue and white tent dubbed “The LaMonica” after the ballroom that graced the Pier from the late 1930s to the early 1960s. Long-time friend of the Pier Katharine King named the concerts the Twilight Dance Series and the moniker stuck.www.twilightdance.org
