Cedar Point Nights set to start – Morning Journal
Cedar Point’s 150th anniversary celebration continues through Aug. 15.
And beginning Aug. 6, there’s another reason to party – Cedar Point Nights.
The park’s summer nighttime beach festival is back Aug. 6 through Sept. 5, according to a news release.
The famous Cedar Point Beach
More than 150 years ago, guests began flocking to the Cedar Point Beach to relax in the summer sun. Fast-forward to today, summer fun still thrives – but after dark, the mile-long strand transforms into a nighttime glow-in-the-dark party complete with three distinct activity zones for guests of all ages, according to the release.
The festival spans the length of the beach starting at the Party Zone, where guests can dance to a live DJ while surrounded by the light of giant glow inflatables or relax on glow-in-the-dark furniture, the release said.
They also can try the Silent Disco, selecting the musical genre of their choice through special headphones.
The Beach Blast Grill & Beverage Shack will serve up summer favorites and specialty beverages.
The Family Fun & Chill Zones round out the nighttime beach party, providing games like winner wheel, football toss, light-up-the-net, glow volleyball, cornhole and light-up limbo, the release said.
Youngsters can get in on the action with glow face painting and the sandbox seashell dig.
Guests also can take it easy while relaxing at numerous fire pits along the beach.
Dine in the Dark
New this year, the Cedar Point culinary team is cooking up an immersive, glow-in-the-dark, all-you-can-eat dining experience.
The park’s Lakeside Dining Room will transform with glowing food and beverage stations, all brought to life with blacklight.
Each food station will feature a smorgasbord of freshly prepared dishes like coconut perch filet tortillas, spicy pepper shrimp with saffron rice, eye of round beef with garlic butter sauce, grilled boneless pork chops and more, the release said.
Guests can round out the meal with sweet plantain bread pudding, tres leches cake or traditional Brigadeiro for dessert.
Cedar Point Nights is free with park admission with beach events beginning at 7 p.m., weather permitting.
The Dine in the Dark experience is served at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m., Thursday through Sunday, with discounted dinner tickets available with advanced online purchase.
