Sept. 11, 2014. Tickets are still available for the highly anticipated Beach Blast on the Blue Ridge, according to the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce. 

On Saturday, Sept. 13, the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce presents Beach Blast on the Blue Ridge, held at the Blue Ridge Mountain Club. The exciting event will feature live music, food and beverages, dancing and more.

This is the third year of Beach Blast,” said Billie Rogers, Events Coordinator for the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce.

“The success of the symphony really got this started. We wanted to put together another music event using a different genre. This event brings a lot of people up from off of the mountain. What we have found is that people want to come up to the mountain in the summer, and to be able to come to something as pretty as the Blue Ridge Mountain Club and see the unbelievable views, that’s what draws them up here.”

Gates for the event open at 5:30 p.m. and the music will start playing soon after. The tunes will be provided courtesy of The Catalinas at 6:30 p.m. and the Band of Oz at 8 p.m. The opening act for the night will be Owen Campbell, bluesman and finalist on Australia’s Got Talent at 5:30 p.m..

Food and beverages will be available at the Beach Blast, but guests are also welcome to bring outside food and drink. Food will be available from the Blowing Rock Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) to raise money to upgrade the elementary school playground. Items available for purchase include fried rice, egg rolls, barbecue with all of the fixins’ and much more.

“There will be plenty of variety,” Rogers said. “You can come down and get full while helping a great cause. Why not help the kids while having fun, that’s always our idea.”

Tickets for this event are $28 in advance and $35 at the gate. Tickets for children under 12 are just $10. Tickets may be purchased at the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce, by phone at 828-295-7851 or online here. The last day for purchasing tickets in advance is Friday, Sept. 12, at 5 p.m. After that, guests purchasing tickets will have to purchase them at the gate price of $35.
