Labor Day Weekend usually marks the unofficial end of summer, but Long Island’s favorite season is not “moving out” just yet. Supervisor Don Clavin and members of the Hempstead Town Board have announced that “Mike DelGuidice and Big Shot” will headline the town’s September 4th event at Town Park Point Lookout that also features a Special Tribute to Frontline Workers and a spectacular fireworks display, all provided free to Town of Hempstead residents! The announcement was made along with Senior Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby, Councilman Bruce Blakeman, Councilman Anthony D’Esposito, Councilman Dennis Dunne, Sr., Councilman Tom Muscarella, Councilman Chris Carini, Town Clerk Kate Murray and Receiver Jeanine Driscoll.
“As one of Long Island’s most celebrated performers, it is fitting that Mike DelGuidice & Big Shot will close out one of Hempstead Town’s most memorable summers,” stated Supervisor Clavin. “I am also excited to welcome our township’s own ‘big shots,’ none other than the brave and dedicated frontline workers who kept us safe and ensured that our supermarkets, drug stores and other essential businesses remained open. Finally, we will have an exciting fireworks display, and we invite all residents to come on down and enjoy the show!”
The festivities begin at 7:30 p.m. at Town Park Point Lookout. All residents are urged to bring their own chairs and blankets and arrive early, as large crowds are expected to attend. Please note: due to safety regulations being implemented for the fireworks show, no one will be permitted to leave the park between 8:30 p.m. until after the fireworks have concluded and an “all-clear” has been communicated to the park. Announcements will be made throughout the evening. The town also thanks sponsors Ridgewood Savings Bank, RAI Design, Swingbellys, Ivarone Brothers, MO’NELISA Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria, Best Family Realty, Frontier Collision, Realty Connect USA and our media sponsors KJOY 98.3, 103.1 MAX FM and WHLI 1100 AM.
“This is our opportunity as the largest town in America to say thank you to all of our essential workers for the many sacrifices they made in service to each and every one of us,” concluded Supervisor Clavin. “We encourage all residents to join us in recognizing our local heroes, to listen to some great music and to enjoy the fireworks on September 4th.”
