Marine Park was abuzz with dancing and singing June 4 at Councilman Lew Fidler’s 11th annual Concert in the Marine Park, which featured Brooklyn-based ragtime jazz band the Dixie Rascals.

“It was a huge success and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect,” said Reeves Eisen, Fidler’s chief of staff.

The free concert, sponsored by the Brooklyn Arts Council and part of the year-round programming run by Fidler’s office, has been held each year to provide a day of music for the senior citizens of District 46. While geared toward senior citizens, the event is open to everyone. This year’s event brought more than 700 senior citizens and more than 900 total attendees.

The event was emceed by Fidler and Paul Curiale, executive director at Millennium Development, a non-profit organization that runs many of the senior, active adult, and youth programs in District 46. This is Fidler’s last term because of term limits, and as his term ends later this year, it’s also his last concert.

“[It’s] a wonderful day for the seniors and Fidler is thrilled to provide it,” said Eisen.
