What To Bring to an Outdoor Concert 

When we're off to a concert at the beach or village green, there are two things my hubby and I never leave home without:     


Easy-Carry Chairs

These light-weight "backpack" chairs are great for outdoor concerts, movies under the stars, and for the beach, too. 

Stash your stuff in the attached storage pouch, then walk hands-free. No need to feel like a pack mule. Just sling 'em over your shoulder and you're good to go!

FYI: The backpack chairs sit low to the ground. People with mobility problems find it easier to use a taller chair. 
 



When our elders are here for a visit, these "easy-in/easy-out" chairs work much better for them! 



Bug Repellent


Summer evenings are "gnat time" near the ocean - and inland, too.

For some reason, the teensy little biters like me a whole lot more than they like my hubby. Probably because I'm so much sweeter than he is. ;-)

So a good bug repellent is an absolute must for me. These Repel wipes always do the trick!

Movies in the Park & at the Beach

Family friendly (free!) movies shown under the stars.
