Beginning this weekend Saturday, July 18th, and running every weekend until Labor Day, The Staten Island Yankees presents Staten Island BeachFest 2015. This 8 weekend long festival will take place at FIVE Staten Island locations simultaneously with free events, giveaways, art shows, music, vendors, rides and more.
Outside the Yankee Stadium on the Plaza you can enjoy a Street Fair with vendors and entertainment presented by the NYC Arts Cypher. Feeling hungry? Take a walk across the street to Borough Hall and enjoy food from local restaurants and food trucks at FEASTival presented by the NSBA.
Over at the South Beach Boardwalk at Sand Lane there will be a Dance Party, Volley Ball and other beach games. If a Carnival atmosphere is what you are looking for, head over to Midland Beach Promenade at Jefferson Avenue (Turtle Circle) where you can enjoy rides, music, zeppole and games for the kids presented by Mort & Ray Productions.
If low key is more your style, hop on the train and head over to Conference House Park to celebrate our American Heritage with unique entertainment and free yoga lessons sponsored by the South Shore Rotary.
