The Bellport Chamber of Commerce will once again be hosting their annual Bellport Day celebration. The Village of Bellport approved the Saturday, July 31 date from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with road closures from the Four Corners to the Bellport Fire House on South Country Road.
Shop owners, according to chamber vice president LuAnn Thompson, will be set up in the streets for an extended shopping opportunity. There will also be street-level performances and dining at the local restaurants.
“It’s going to be a really nice, pleasant day,” she said, also noting the event is free and open to the public. “It’s going to be really fun. We have new businesses that opened that maybe you didn’t get a chance to see. This is the opportunity to see what’s new in Bellport.”
In addition to the two booked bands—including the New Students, a modern bluegrass band, and High Tide, a ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s cover band—chamber president John Hannon has hired the National Circus Project. A juggler and stilt walker will be performing throughout the day. Bellport Fire Department will also be coinciding their annual craft fair that day.
All restrictions have been lifted, though eventgoers are being asked to practice social distancing.
