Family traditions abound on Catalina Island. For many families, a week vacation in Avalon is an annual migration that goes back generations. Whether it’s dinner at a particular restaurant, family hikes or beach towels at a certain spot, those family getaways often include the same activities year after year.
One spot where families can frequently be found is on South Beach during Summer Beach Bingo. Held every Tuesday and Thursday through Aug. 25, Summer Beach Bingo is hosted by the City of Avalon’s Recreation Department. Cards are only $1 and winners will receive a variety of prizes donated by local businesses. Dozens of people typically show up for Summer Beach Bingo on Catalina Island, which happens from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., although showing up a few minutes early to get a good spot is encouraged. The bingo caller will be at the lifeguard stand in the middle of South Beach. For more information, call the City of Avalon at (310) 510-0220.
