‘Summer Moons’ Coming to RAA Moonstage

Refreshing Rockaway is not only a cool place to watch the stars come out this August, but also the spot to bring the whole family at 7:30 every Thursday night as the Rockaway Artists Alliance inaugurates SUMMER MOONS 2005, an ever changing program of entertainment suitable for all, says a spokesperson for the arts organization..

Presented on the outdoor Moon Stage of the Rockaway Center for the Arts (RoCA), (bring your blankets and chairs!) this first of its kind series kicked off to the rousing multi-musical sounds of Indaculture on August 4, and continues on with a host of musical guests plus a variety of entertainments and surprises on August 11, 18 and 25. All shows are FREE and presented weather permitting. And ample parking is available!

So, along with the old thrills of August like cold ice cream and long evenings, enjoy the new sensation of Thursday SUMMER MOONS and let the night take you away with entertainment fit for all ages, urges the spokesperson.

For more information on this program or upcoming Rockaway Artists Alliance exhibitions and events, please call 718-474-0861, e-mail rockart116@aol.org or visit www. rockawayartistsalliance.org.

SUMMER MOONS 2005 is presented in partnership with The National Park Service/Gateway National Recreation Area, and takes place on the outdoor stage situated between the Rockaway Center for the Arts (RoCA) sTudio 6 and sTudio 7 galleries, located at Fort Tilden, Queens. Fort Tilden, an historic and now decommissioned U.S. Army post, is today home to many cultural and community activities in the Rockaways and is noted as one of the best spots in Queens to view the night sky. It is bordered by the ocean waves that curve along the Atlantic shore and by the calm waters of Jamaica Bay. As part of Gateway National Recreation Area, it complements a uniquely picturesque urban national park, which spans several boroughs and incorporates beaches, marshlands and bird and wildlife sanctuaries.
