Town of Babylon Supervisor Rich Schaffer, Deputy Supervisor and Parks & Recreation Chairman Tony Martinez, and the rest of the Babylon Town Board invited residents to celebrate the summer season at Overlook Beach on Saturday, August 14 for the Town’s annual Beach Blast. The event featured live musical entertainment, hula hoop games, tug of war, trivia games and more.
Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez and Councilman Terence McSweeney joined beachgoers as they lined Overlook for a late-summer visit to the ocean and pitched tents, stuck umbrellas in the sand and of course took a swim in the water. The Town of Babylon lifeguard staff helped keep everyone safe while enjoying the waves. Dozens of children competed in this year’s relay games and they were cheered on by friends, family and other residents. Prizes including ice cream bars were awarded to the participants.
After dark, the festivities concluded with the 27th annual firework extravaganza display, a staple of the Beach Blast. Residents looked up and enjoyed the colorful display, which served as a proper sendoff to the 2021 summer season.
