PROVIDES A FUN EVENING OF MUSIC
On August 28, 2020, as part of the Babylon is Back initiative, five local musical acts performed remotely while projected on a large screen for a drive-in concert in Amityville, delighting the audience at O'Connor Field. Babylon Citizens Council on the Arts (BACCA) and Colored Colors coordinated the event through the Babylon Together initiative, made possible by the Babylon is Back program, which is funded by the Town of Babylon Local Development Corporation (TOBLDC). Residents were treated to an enjoyable night of music while staying safely socially distanced. Over 30 cars drove up to O’Connor Field in Amityville for a night of local entertainment.
