A Message from the Mayor
All throughout our Village the signs of Summer are here. From our hardworking Public Works staff sprucing up the public areas with spring plantings, to cleaning up the welcome to Massapequa Park Berm on Sunrise Highway and power washing the LIRR retaining wall along Front Street. Additionally, upgrades are underway at Brady Park, which includes the installation of a brand new Pickleball court. Our 2022 road paving schedule will begin soon, and we will continue to build on our repaving efforts from last year.
Memorial Day brought with it the return of the Memorial Day Parade and ceremony in service of the Massapequas by the Sgt. Peter F. Colleran Post #7763 Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion Post #1066. It was a perfect day to honor and remember all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice defending our country and our freedom.
The Village Board, and I are especially happy this year to be bringing back our “Breakfast in the Park” event on Sunday, June 26th starting at 8am. Come out and enjoy Brady Park’s beautiful location on the preserve and a delicious breakfast with your family, friends, and neighbors.
In July, we will be celebrating our American spirt with the return of our Fireworks display to start off the Independence Day weekend on Friday, July 1st in Mansfield Park from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm. Families will be able to enjoy music performed by “Time Was Productions” followed by the fireworks display at dark. On Monday, July 4th, we will be hosting our annual 4th of July Parade and I am looking forward to a wonderful display of American patriotism parading down Lake Shore Drive and Park Boulevard.
I am excited to announce this year, following our successful Park After Dark event in 2021, we will be holding one Park After Dark each month this summer. This event is great time for residents and families to meet up and take in the summer nights on Front St and Park Blvd and support our local merchants.
I truly hope you enjoy all that our Village has to offer this summer. As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us here at Village Hall.
Wishing all of you a happy and healthy summer.
