Wednesday: BayFest Planning Meeting

Got an idea for Sheepshead Bay’s biggest annual festival? Bay Improvement Group (BIG) is having a planning meeting tomorrow night, and they want to hear your ideas on how to make BayFest2010 bigger, better, and ballsier than the rest. (Okay, we added that last one.)

And there’s reason to believe this year really will be leaps and bounds beyond previous years’ celebrations. Why? Because back in August, BIG secured more than $27,500 from local politicians, making it the largest budget the group has had yet. And in the months since, they’ve been hitting up corporate and small-business partners for sponsorships, their primary source of funding in other years.

At the last planning meeting, BIG President Steve Barrison even suggested the group would love to score some top-notch headliners for the stage. But money and bands aren’t going to make a better BayFest by themselves. The group needs raw manpower. So get involved and bring some fresh blood to a Sheepshead Bay tradition!

When: Wednesday, December 2 at 8 p.m.
Where: The Golden Gate Inn (located at the intersection of Knapp Street & Shore Parkway)
Free Parking is available. For further directions you can call the Golden Gate Inn at 718-743-4000
