It was a “BIG” day in the Bay!
Hundreds of families kicked off the start of warmer weather and longer days during the Bay Improvement Group’s 26th annual BayFest in Sheepshead Bay on May 21. Youngsters jumped away on the fan-favorite bouncy castle and everyone enjoyed the beats from local bands, but the kids choir from nearby school PS 52 was a highlight, said a leader of the group.
“The PS 52 choir, known as the ‘Sheepshead Singers,’ had a special performance that was great. It reflects the education, arts, and community,” said Jack Spadaro. “We had a lot of entertainment and a great turnout for families and kids.”
Brooklyn band Robert Santa headlined the fest, along with Flight of Sound and the Blue Meanies. The Fire Department also put on a dazzling show on the water with a fireboat display, and gave away firemen hats to excited tots who one day may become the next generation of New York’s Bravest, said Sheepshead Bay resident Jackson Ma, who brought his 4-year-old son Matthew.
“He had a fun time,” Ma said. “He went to the fire demonstration, got a little fire hat.”
