Upcoming Events On The Beach
The Parks Department will hold its 12th annual Sandcastle Contest, sponsored by West End Realty, on Sunday, July 29, 2007. Registration will begin at 10 a.m. and the contest will take place from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on the beach at Beach 119 Street in Rockaway Park. Talented sculptors and novice sandcastle builders alike are all welcome to join the festivities, as prizes will be awarded and refreshments served.
The Parks Department will also hold a Movie Night on the beach on Sunday, August 5 at 8 p.m. on Beach 17 Street, in O'Donohue Park. There hasn't been a movie theatre in Rockaway for several years, so this is an opportunity to get outside and enjoy a great film with friends and family. The family film "Happy Feet" will be shown; make sure to bring a chair or blanket to make yourself comfortable.
