Beacon's annual, schoolwide celebration for families and staff. Our most well-attended event of the year! Good food, family-friendly activities, and the best company around. Location: Beacon playground. 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.


Enjoy live music by Batalá San Francisco, a Brazilian percussion and dance ensemble. They play samba reggae, the popular musical genre of Salvador, Bahia. With five types of drums, they create a powerful, dynamic sound that captivates audiences.
