Music to shine a light this Labor Day
August 17, 2013 by James
Boat owners and music enthusiasts alike may want to check out the Lighthouse Music Festival over Labor Day Weekend.
The festival was created last year to celebrate the Huntington lighthouse’s 100th anniversary. The lighthouse was saved from demolition in the 1980s and has been under the care of the Lighthouse Preservation Society since then. It is still a fully operational facility and, this year, any funds raised by the concert will be put towards fixing the rip-rap surrounding the lighthouse.
There are seven bands performing in the festival this year, each of whom has a different musical style. There will be everything from traditional rock music, to Caribbean music, to covers of Santana’s songs. The bands performing are King Wellington, Chic N’ Martini, The Fuzz, Blacklight, Playback, Pamela Betti, and Milagro. Those interested in attending the concert should know that it will only be viewable from the water, so being on some sort of boat is necessary.
Organizers for this event will likely want to promote within different boating communities to make sure that anyone nearby with a seaworthy vessel knows about it. Flyer printing companies can help to produce the sort of printed materials that work well for advertising. Flyers, postcards, and promotional posters distributed in Huntington, New York and other areas of Long Island will go a long way towards drawing in crowds.
The event begins at 11:00 am on August 31 and runs until 8:00 pm that evening. It is the lighthouse’s 101st year this year.
