What time does the Sun of a Beach Festival start?
The party kicks off at 2 p.m. and ends when it's done!
Where is the Sun of a Beach Festival taking place?
Since Cash Point: The Party Place already has the word "party" in it, we figured it was a safe bet. The street address for it is: 221 Cash Point Road, Bossier City, La. 71111.
Will there be food and drinks at the Sun of a Beach Festival?
You bet there will be; it's a party, after all! You can check out the full vendor list for yourself.

There will be beer and other tasty adult beverages available for people 21 and over. Make sure you're packing your driver's license if you want to be served.
How much are tickets to the Sun of a Beach Festival?
Up until the day of the event (June 14), tickets are $10 (plus a $1.54 fee) and can be purchased online. If you wait until June 14 to buy tickets to Sun of a Beach at the door, the price will be $15. Doesn't sound like much, but that's at least a drink!
What if I want to bring my kids? Is that OK?
Sure it is! And guess what: if your little parrothead is five or younger, they get in for free.
Can I bring my pet lemur? How about my ferret? OK, OK -- my pet gator.
We expect the Sun of a Beach Festival to be full of party animals, but not literally! So unfortunately, the only pets we're allowing in are service dogs.
Is it OK to bring my own food/snacks/drinks/etc.?
Nope! But considering the food vendors we're have at the Sun of a Beach Festival, that shouldn't be a big problem.
Can I bring my cooler?
We aren't allowing personal coolers to be brought into the event. Sorry!
Is it OK to bring a lawn chair?
Absolutely! We want everyone to be able to kick back and relax, so bring that favorite lawn chair of yours down to Cash Point.
How can I let my friends know that I'm going to the Sun of a Beach Festival and invite them?
First, let us know you're coming to the Sun of a Beach Festival on our Facebook event page for it. Then, you can invite your Facebook friends by clicking on the little "Invite" option (it'll be right next to "Going"), selecting "Choose Friends" and picking the pals you want to invite. Don't be shy; invite as many as you want!
What should I wear to the Sun of a Beach Festival?
Not your work clothes, that's for sure! Sun of a Beach is an ode to all things beach, so feel free to throw on your favorite Hawaiian shirt (the louder, the better!), a pair of shorts and a comfy pair of sandals or flip flops. If you need more advice, check out our style guide. But the most important thing to remember is to dress casual and comfortable.
Who is playing the Sun of a Beach Festival?
We've got three cool bands that all know how to party. Shreveport's own Black Water Bride are bringing southern rock and roll to the event, while Stiff Necked Fools (also from Shreveport) will play some good ol' bayou reggae. And don't think we forgot about you parrotheads! Brent Burns, known for playing some super fun and catchy tropical rock, will also be playing live. We're crossing our fingers for a little "Margaritaville"!
When will the bands be jamming?
The music is going to start early and go straight on through to the end -- just like any respectable beach party! Check out the full band by band breakdown so you don't miss a single song.
