April 15 doesn’t necessarily have to be the most depressing day of the year. Thanks to delicious high-alcohol craft beers, Tax Day can also be fun. This Saturday starting at 1 p.m. (unless you have a VIP pass, in which case you can get in at noon, baller), the Long Beach Craft Beer and Oyster Festival kicks off at Shoreline Aquatic Park (200 Aquarium Way). Organizers are encouraging people to arrive early to avoid long lines.
In addition to local brewers, there will be food trucks, music, and hipster-magnet outdoor games like giant jenga, ladder ball, and corn hole. Guests must be 21 to enter.
Tickets run from $10-$89.
