Beernutz concert, fireworks spectacle light up Masone Beach in Island Park


The band Beernutz rocked the stage and fireworks lit the nighttime sky at Masone Beach in Island Park for the village’s final concert of its summer series on Aug. 31.

Nanci-Jean DeNapoli lends her voice as the vocalist of the band, which covers classic rock songs from such artists as The Rolling Stones.

Dozens of residents flocked to the beach for the Labor Day Weekend spectacle, which was also attended by Mayor Michael McGinty, the board of trustees and Hempstead Town Councilman Anthony D’Esposito. Before the band hit the stage, McGinty and D’Esposito thanked residents for making the summer of 2019 a success at Masone Beach by attending concerts and other events there.

After the concert, the village hosted its annual fireworks display as bursts of bright colors filled the sky over Masone Beach near the dock.
