Concert Series Continues; New Ball Fields

Happenings around North Hempstead.

Catch live music Sunday at  in Port Washington, when Soul Be It, a funk and soul band promise to play the “hottest tunes around.” 1-2:30 p.m.

New Ballfields

Athletes can now batter-up at two new ball fields at North Hempstead Beach Park. Both fields feature a synthetic turf infield and new sod in the outfield.  A high-tech scoreboard will be installed in the near future.

One field is completely enclosed by a fence and features a warning track. The other baseball diamond’s outfield has been left open so that the playing surface can be easily reconfigured to accommodate any number of other sports, including soccer.

A permit from the Department of Parks and Recreation is required to secure this space. Learn more by dialing 311.  


Get ready for KidStock, on Aug. 26 at . The second annual outdoor music festival will feature live musical entertainment for both kids and parents.

Special guest MC Roscoe “Gordon of Sesame Street” Orman will serve as host, spinning a blend of folk, rock, kid pop, and kid rock.

Performers will include Bari Koral Family Rock Band, whose music inspires residents of all ages to get up and dance.

Local favorite Strummin’ and Drummin’, featuring brothers Chris and Matt Marshak, will follow with their funky, bluesy, soulful, and silly kids’ songs to get the audience singing along.

Next, critically-acclaimed Dan Zanes & Elizabeth Mitchell will take to the stage, prompting the entire family to join in.

Bringing down the curtains to the musical showcase, Grammy Award nominated Brady Rymer & the Little Band That Could, will present their high-energy act, featuring songs celebrating children of all abilities.
