He first performed on the Lincroft Village Green a few years ago to perform on the green space that the LVGA saved from commercial development. He was an giant hit with families who came from all over to hear their favorite children’s songwriter perform live and to sing along to their favorite songs . This event is offered free to the public in keeping with the LVGA mission to enhance life in our village.”
The general public is welcome. General parking is available at the adjacent Lincroft Elementary school with handicapped parking located at the Lincroft Village Green. Should it rain, the show will go on, but at an alternate location which will be announced on the LVGA website and Facebook page.
