Stamford, CT, Festival Welcomes Boaters
May 16, 2011
The first annual Stamford Harbor Live (SHL) will take place on Saturday, May 28, in Stamford, Connecticut. Started by local residents and business owners in the Stamford Harbor area, the goal of the festival is to attract, entertain and engage an audience from Manhattan to Mystic and across the sound in Long Island. People will be able to attend the festival by boat or on land.
A barge, placed in the center of Stamford Harbor, will act as the stage/venue for the performances of 6 bands. Hundreds of boats from surrounding areas can enter the harbor and anchor around the barge for maximum viewing and listening. Land-based spectators can enjoy the music and entertainment from the boardwalks to the east and west of the barge.
SHL will benefit the Young Mariners, a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing academic and life skills achievement of low-income students through after-school and summer-education programs.
