By Jaz Joyner

This Saturday marks the launch of Staten Island Beach Fest, a summer long series of free events for the whole family. Thanks to the New York City Economic Development Corp and NYC Parks along with the hosts, Berman Group, every weekend now until Labor Day on Midland Beach there will be a new set of activities and special events for you to enjoy.

This weekend will jump off with a giant sandcastle demonstration by professional sand sculptor Matt Long starting at 9am. During the sand sculpting lesson there will also be free ice cream samples between 11:30am- 3pm from everyone's favorite dairy-treat-duo, Ben & Jerry, as well as live music courtesy of LoveBomb Band starting at 1pm on the Concert Lawn. 

Future events will include the Culinary Kids Farmers Market, Bikram yoga by the shore, free fitness classes, food tastings and even COX FarePlay video gaming truck by Splash Plaza where you can go on gaming adventures outside.

Be sure to check out the SI Beach Fest calendar where all of the upcoming events will be listed. You have seven more weekends to take advantage of all this summer fun, so go get your tan on and have a good time.
