After the Five Towns Community Chest 5K run, hundreds of people strolled Broadway, between Conklin Avenue in Woodmere and Trinity Place in Hewlett at the Arts Below Sunrise, Hewlett-Woodmere’s first music and arts festival on Sunday.
Broadway was shut down to accommodate the Town of Hempstead’s show mobile, craft and food vendors, games, a demonstration by the Cornell Cooperative Extension and a child safety program organized by the Town of Hempstead’s Mobile Town Hall. The Hewlett and Woodmere fire departments also participated.
Arts Below Sunrise was a collaborative effort between the Hewlett-Woodmere Public Schools Endowment Fund, the Five Towns Community Chest and the Hewlett-Woodmere Business Association in an effort to bring the two communities together while raising money for scholarships and educational programs and drawing positive attention to the merchants in the area.
