DOWNTOWN HALLOWEEN PARADE BREWED WONDERS
Glen Cove, NY- The wonderful Halloween weather rallied a wide assortment of heroes and villains to come join in the festivities, as the Glen Cove Downtown Business Improvement District's yearly Halloween parade transformed School and Glen Streets into the trick or treat hotspot. The celebration began at noon with The Regency Assisted Living’s exhilarating Spooky Story Hour. At around 1 P.M. the marchers banded together to parade through the streets of Downtown Glen Cove. The children then partook in the trick-or-treating ritual by visiting the welcoming merchants.
    Children were slipping and sliding, climbing and running all over the insides of The Fun Bus, while thrilling music was blaring through the DJ’s speakers. The Jack O’ Lantern Hole in One Mini Golf & the Witches Broom Race Contest captured everyone’s attention which resulted in over a hundred prizes won. The children were also provided with an unlimited supply of Cotton Candy to taste throughout the entire Halloween Parade festivities. This year’s Costume Contest sparked wide controversy among the judges but after a tough deliberation, the top first place winners included: “Cowboy & Indian”, “Nutcracker Suite” Gianna and Salvatore DiMaggio and Daniella Bencivenni and “Froot Loops” Vera Glouchkov. Furthermore, the second place winners included: “Pig & Wolf”. “Shimmer & Shine” Aaliyah and Zaya Dubois and “Traveler in a Hot Air Balloon” Stephania Martinez. The Glen Cove B.I.D. would like to thank our judges, Julie Papas of ClayNation, Dr. Mariya Malin of One & Only Dental and Tatiana of PetSmart for their services as judges.
    To top it all off there was a Pie Eating Contest with six delicious apple pies that were devoured quickly but not as quick as first place winner, Michaela Adam, who cleaned her palate in sixty seconds with no assistance from her helping hands. BRAVO!
    The Glen Cove Downtown Business Improvement District would like to thank the members of the Glen Cove DECA Club for their assistance, and our most generous sponsors: One & Only Dental, Planet Fitness, ClayNation, Glen Floors, Mathnasium of Glen Cove, Regency Assisted Living at Glen Cove, PetSmart, Gill Associates Photography, AMC Glen Cove 6 Theatres and Starbucks, as well as all of our participating merchants.

Downtown BID Commissions New Botanical Design

GLEN COVE DOWNTOWN BID COMMISSIONS NEW BOTANICAL DESIGN AND IRRIGATION SYSTEM

Glen Cove, N.Y. - The Glen Cove Business Improvement District donated the sprinkler system at the Brewster Street garage, which has been installed by Grennan Irrigation Inc., in part with a project to re-landscape and beautify the area. “This was an important project for the BID as it is a heavy traffic area, and we wanted to make it look nicer for those driving and walking by”, said Brian Mercadante, Co-Chair of the BID Capital Improvements Committee. While the sprinkler systems were being installed, Cabo Landscaping Inc. was working on a new landscaping design that consists of hydrangeas, junipers, white pine, and many other botanical arrangements along the Brewster Street Garage.
 “For many years, the BID has been denied a sprinkler system due to a lack of a water source, but after much determination, the current administration finally approved of the sprinkler system and now the BID can get back to work revitalizing the area”, said Patricia Holman, Executive Director of the Glen Cove Downtown BID.  The Downtown BID has planted many gardens throughout the walkways and has funded the maintenance of these gardens. Throughout the seasons, the BID will be planting new grass seeds and different flowers for the fall, summer, and spring. “Now that the water is in, let’s start making it beautiful”, said Brian Mercadante.
