Hi everyone. I was wondering, are the sentences

1) We will be entertained by the scheduled performances, as well as enjoy the company of family and friends.

and

2) We will be entertained by the scheduled performances, as well as enjoying the company of family and friends.

grammatically correct? They sound right, but I'm not sure if you're allowed to mix tenses in this way.

    Hi,
    In my opinion the key word in these 2 sentences is the word 'be' (3rd word) - one is supposed to respect the tense introduced - you can say 'we will be enjoying' but not 'we will be enjoy' even though the 'be' is introduced with the passive voice (we will be entertained). On the other hand, one could say: We will be entertained by the scheduled performances, and we will enjoy OR we will be enjoying the company of family and friends.
