The Arts and Crafts Fair on Bell Boulevard was a hit with community members in 2010.

The first annual outdoor music festival on Bell Boulevard recently had community members dancing in the streets, according to Gregg Sullivan, Bayside Village Business Improvement District (BID) executive director. But the fall events have just begun.

On Sunday, October 9 from noon until 6 p.m. the BID, in association with the Bayside Historical Society and Alley Pond Environmental Center, will temporarily close 41st Avenue on both sides of Bell Boulevard for the first annual Bayside Village Retail Expo. The event is specifically designed to introduce and reacquaint the local community with the local retail businesses along Bell Boulevard and to show shoppers what local retailers have to offer. The event will also feature live music at the newly-restored Bayside LIRR station park.

The following Sunday, October 16, Bell Boulevard will be host to the second annual Bayside Village Arts and Crafts Fair as well as the kick-off of the Bayside LIRR beautification. While there will be goods for sale along the boulevard, the emphasis of this year’s fair will focus more on the visual and performing arts with live performances from local musical and dance groups.

During last weekend in October, the BID is sponsoring a contest for storeowners along the boulevard for the most creative Halloween window display with the winner to be announced online on Tuesday, November 1.
