Alive by the Bay will run from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., with road closures beginning at 5 p.m. Main Street will be closed from Bay Shore Avenue/Shore Lane west to Ocean Avenue.
But Main Street will not be entirely closed from end to end. Maple Avenue will remain open for vehicles to access the Fire Island ferries to the south.
Bay Shore will be rocking on a Wednesday night next month with the arrival of Alive by the Bay.
The concept for the street festival, set for July 12, can be best described as the Bay Shore Arts Festival meets Patchogue’s Alive After Five.
It’s being organized by the Chamber of Commerce of Greater Bay Shore’s newly formed restaurant committee.
“This was the 17th year of the Arts Festival,” said Alive by the Bay organizer Anthony Tartaglia, co-owner of Verde Kitchen & Cocktails. “We drew like 10,000 people from all over the island on a Sunday in June. We just felt it would be great to do something like that at nighttime as well.”
Alive by the Bay will feature live music, about 30 vendors, as well as arts and crafts and other activities for kids.
“It is supposed to be a family friendly event,” Tartaglia said.
The rain date is July 26.
