Over the past few years, we’ve talked a little about the Astoria Shore Fest (originally called the Astoria Water Walk), a three-weekend event that closes down Shore Blvd to vehicular traffic and opens it up to people, bikes, and other non-motorized ways of getting around. It’s similar to the Summer Streets held during the summer in Manhattan. Astorians love this annual event, and it’s important to the community. I can tell you right now that during these three weekends, there will be stuff for kids, music lovers, food lovers, and pet lovers, too!

Of course, it takes $$ to run the event, and currently there is a fundraising effort going on via IOBY┬áin support of the Shore Fest. Most of the money has been raised but they haven’t quite reached their goal of $4,567. At this writing, there’s only $387 left to go! They need to raise all the funds by June 30, so there’s only a few days left for the campaign.

Can you help? It would be awesome if so! Every little bit helps, so if you can donate, please do. Here’s the link:

This is a wonderful community effort – you won’t regret supporting it!
