Global Spectrum To Host Free Florida Georgia Line Boardwalk Party for General Public and Ticketholders on Friday, May 8 Before Concert at Boardwalk Hall
After a successful season in 2014, Global Spectrum, operators of Historic Boardwalk Hall and the Atlantic City Convention Center, will bring back their boardwalk pre-parties once again this year. The first boardwalk pre-party will begin with the Florida Georgia Line show on Friday, May 8. The free tailgate party will be held on the famous Atlantic City Boardwalk at Kennedy Plaza before the start of the show at 4:30 p.m.
The Florida Georgia Line pre-party will be open to both ticketholders as well as the general public. It will feature food and drink purchases from Ducktown Tavern, live DJ entertainment, and other on-site activations.
“After the success of the 2014 pre-parties and the positive feedback we’ve received, we are thrilled to be able to kick off our boardwalk pre-parties again this year starting with the Florida Georgia Line show on Friday. It is a top priority for us to provide fans with an optimal experience and inviting them out to the boardwalk to enjoy some pre-show entertainment, food, and beverages is a great way to extend their event day and enjoy the beautiful scenery that Atlantic City has to offer”, said Fran Rodowicz, General Manager of Global Spectrum at Boardwalk Hall.
