RAA Sets 'Summer Moons'For Summer Thursdays

Refreshing Rockaway is not only a cool place to watch the stars come out this Summer, but also the spot to bring the whole family at 7:30 every Thursday night as the Rockaway Artists Alliance presents SUMMER MOONS 2006, an ever changing program of entertainment suitable for all, a spokesperson for the local arts group says.

Beginning July 13 with the rhythm, bounce and varied hues of Hudson's Hope on the outdoor Moon Stage of the Rockaway Center for the Arts (RoCA) at Fort Tilden, this series enters its second season after a rousing inauguration last summer. Current plans under development include films, karaoke nights, singers, open mike evenings, jazz, and bands plus plenty of impromptu guests and surprises. SUMMER MOONS runs through to August 24. All shows are FREE and presented rain or shine. Indoor shows will take place in sTudio 7 at Fort Tilden.

So along with the old thrills of July and August like cold ice cream and long cool evenings, enjoy the new sensation of Thursday SUMMER MOONS and let the night take you away with entertainment for all ages. Ample parking is available, that spokesperson said, urging those who come to bring coolers, blankets and chairs!

For more information on this program or upcoming Rockaway Artists Alliance exhibitions and events, please call (718) 474-0861, e-mail rockart116@aol.com or visit www.rockawayartistsalliance.org. SUMMER MOONS 2006 is presented in partnership with The National Park Service/Gateway National Recreation Area.

SUMMER MOONS 2006 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. (Shows will take place in sTudio 7 in case of rain.) 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 curving waves of 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.
