At this week’s Northport Village board of trustees meeting, the board approved several well-loved and traditional events that will take place this summer, some for the first time since before the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Chamber of Commerce’s request to hold two “Family Nights” was approved for consecutive Tuesdays, July 12 and 19, from 6-9pm. Family Nights draw a crowd of hundreds, including strollers, toddlers and children being entertained with live performances, a DJ, bouncy slides and, of course, ice cream. In years past, Main Street restaurants set up tables outside and local businesses set up booths for passersby. Family Night hasn’t been held since 2019, so it’s a welcomed return this summer.
Also approved by the board was “Summerfest,” which involves live music on Wednesday nights in August at the gazebo bandstand. The Halloween Hayride and Annual Tree Lighting are also on the calendar for 2022.
In addition to the Chamber of Commerce events, the Board received a request to approve the “Blessing of the Fleet,” which will take place on Saturday, June 11 at 11am.
