SPRINGFEST CELEBRATES SEA CLIFF
June 15, 2015 -- Sea Cliff held its third annual Springfest, a celebration of the village's vibrant community culture - in particular its volunteer groups, businesses, artists and musicians. At booths lining the avenue, local artisans and proprietors sold their wares and community organizations were given the opportunity to publicize their services and recruit new members.
Entertainment was provided by local musicians who performed from a stage set up in the lot of G&H Auto Repairs. Performers included Los Platanos, Lisa Vetrone and the 67's, Rich Boehm and Friends Lazy Dogs, Dave Diamond Band and RiDE.
As Springfest wound down, and one walked up Sea Cliff Avenue towards Clifton Park, the rythyms of RiDE gradually gave way to the stirring sounds of the Northwinds Symphony performing "Red, White, and Brass," a concert of classic American band music.
Residents, some seated in lawn chairs and others lounging or picnicking on blankets, filled the southwestern corner of the park as they listened to the band perform marches, Broadway and movie tunes, patriotic favorites, and solo features by members of the band. Additionally, concert goers had the opportunity to view a portion of Glen Cove resident Robert Staada's extensive collection of military memorabilia dating from World War II to the present that has been featured in Newsday.
The concert was presented by Northwinds in collaboration with the Sea Cliff Civic Association and the Sea Cliff Arts Council
