Although it certainly doesn't feel like summer in NYC (or spring, for that matter), we're super-excited to check out the best New York beaches come Memorial Day. 

In case you haven't made plans for the upcoming three-day weekend (FYI: the holiday kicks off on May 26!), the good folks from Riis Park Beach Bazaar are giving you plenty of reasons why a trip to Jacob Riis is the way to go. Now entering its third year at Rockaway, the Beach Bazaar's lineup still includes the same ace entertainment, including fantastic concerts, excellent concessions from food vendors and special programs for folks of all ages.

Jam and rock out Friday through Sunday (and holidays) during the attraction's live concert series, get sweaty and sandy by joining the Rockaway Beach Volleyball League every Wednesday, sing your heart out on Tuesdays at Killer Karaoke with DJ Nicky B and chill by the campfire on Thursdays with the National Parks Service. 

After a day spent catching some waves or tanning on the beach, make sure to refuel with bites provided by Whit's End, Fletcher's BBQ, Coney Shack, Ed & Bevs Oaxaxa Tacos, Ample Hills Creamery and many more. 

For a full list of events, including special one-off festivities such as Rock! Away! Music Festival, check out the calendar lineup provided by Riis Park Beach Bazaar below!
