Harrison Camp Ends Summer With a Grand Finale

HARRISON, N.Y. - Camp Brookside celebrated the end of another summer last week with a 7 p.m. year-ending concert at Ma Riis Park in downtown Harrison.

Boys and girls separated by grade took turns performing on the recreation stage for parents and friends Wednesday night while singing summer-themed classic like "Surfin' Safari" by The Beach Boys and "Pocket Full of Sunshine" by Natasha Bedingfield.

A similar event took place Thursday night at 7 p.m. in West Harrison.

The children performances were followed by a special appearance from the Westchester Brassmen .

Ron Belmont of the Harrison Recreation Department also addressed the crowd of over 150, acknowledging that his role will soon end. Belmont is running for Harrison mayor and supervisor against current Mayor Joan Walsh.

The event was part of Harrison's summer concert series . The camp hosted a summer-ending carnival last week at the same location.

"It's a great way to get the parents and the kids out together," Brookside Office Manager Theresa Gasparre said. "It's a lot of fun."
