Thousands pack into the area for the annual extravaganza.
It’s the premier street festival on Long Island.
That’s the way Legis. Dave Denenberg, D-Merrick, described the Bellmore Street Festival, which is certainly the place to be this weekend in Nassau County.
“It’s absolutely great,” Denenberg said. “A lot of credit needs to be given to the Chamber of Commerce and Nassau County Police for making this a safe event for everyone to enjoy.”
Vendors have packed the streets of Bellmore, from Sunrise Highway, all the way through Bellmore Village. Of course, there are the rides as well, and several other fun options, including a lane for bowling, a huge slide, a petting zoo, pony ride, shark tank and much more.
“It’s a great way to bring families together in Bellmore,” Assemblyman Dave McDonough, R-Merrick, said. “This gets bigger and better every year.”
There are also plenty of food options, including a big food stand run by the Bellmore Lions Club. Several Bedford Avenue businesses also set up cooking stations.
“We couldn’t have dreamed for this to go any better,” Martha Verdi, the festival coordinator, said. “We’re very pleased.”
