Although it was a cold, spring afternoon this past Sunday, May 17, 2009, with skies threatening to rain, the turnout was still in the thousands. The band that played, “Legendary Lead Guitarist of Supergroup Vanilla Fudge Vince Martell” sounded great and performed one song after another. We arrived later in the afternoon and they were still going strong, playing rock classics, and making the crowd feel nostalgic.
Children were bouncing in the moon bouncers, falling (and laughing) in the obstacle course and shooting hoops at the basketball blow up. When they came out of the inflatables, they picked up their shoes that had been guarded over by some very friendly people, who gladly agreed to take a picture if you gave them your camera.
A hearty thanks goes out to the Bay Improvement Group and its sponsors for bringing this great event to the Sheepshead Bay community. We’re wondering if maybe next year, the organizers would consider running this event in the summer.
