This year the RPBB will be spon-
soring a team called the Rock-
away Breakers! “RBVL is really
one of my favorite things about
Rockaway and Riis - it’s just such
an awesome thing to see every
Wednesday” proclaims Riis
Park Beach Bazaar owner, Belvy
Klein. I think we all agree.
ing beginning May 27 will be
Campfire Fridays, which is in
conjunction with the National
Park Service and is an all-ages
events for everyone to enjoy all
summer long. “Killer Karaoke”
is an another weekly occurrence
commencing Tuesday, June 28.
There will also be a lot of one-
offs like “Adoptapalooza: May-
or’s Alliance For NYC’s Animals”
large-scale adoption event on
June 18 and Brooklyn Green-
way’s Epic Ride bicycle event on
July 23.
There will be plenty of spon-
sored live music featuring local
and touring bands, DJ’s, and art-
ists. Klein noted “I think it’s im-
portant to have a local presence
with regards to both our vendors
and live music schedule. We did
last year somewhat but I think
one year in, we’ve made that
many more friends and contacts
here so it’s just a natural pro-
gression.” The following local
bands will be kicking off the sea-
son: Simon & the Bar Sinisters
on May 28, The Supertones on
May 29 (both starting at noon)
and Indaculture on June 11 at
