April 27: BIG BayFest Planning Meeting

While so many popular commercial enterprises in Sheepshead Bay seem to be going belly up, one civic group is gearing up to celebrate the 20


anniversary of its annual waterfront festival — touted as Brooklyn’s biggest — and organizers need your help.

There will be a planning and volunteer meeting for BayFest — the “all-day, nonstop celebration of Sheepshead Bay” coordinated by the Bay Improvement Group (BIG) — at 8 p.m., April 27 inside the Comfort Inn’s meeting room, 3218 Emmons Avenue at Brigham Street.

Volunteers are needed for the daylong festival, which will be held May 15 along the Emmons Avenue waterfront, and will feature live entertainment, amusement rides, a basketball shootout, Martial Arts demonstrations, FDNY displays and more.

To learn more about how you can get involved, call (718) 646-9206, visit their website, or go to BIG’s YouTube page.
