Grab the craziest Hawaiian shirt you can find and hula your way to Allegany State Park for our 7th Annual Beach Party!

The fun will begin at 6pm at the Red House Beach area. Allegany's own Artist in Residence and Buffalo musician, Kevin McCarthy, will kick off the live music performances. McCarthy has twice been voted top solo artist and was inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame in 2009.

McCarthy will be followed by Lancaster High School's Carnival Kids Steel Orchestra. This unique, award-winning orchestra was established in 1974 and is the third oldest continuing steel drum program in the US. They perform locally, nationally and internationally, making up to 30 appearances each year. In addition to winning multiple awards, the group has released 3 popular CDs!

The evening will also feature Mark Baker of Eagle Dream Rehabilitation Center with his live birds of prey, activities for the kids, and a "Craziest Hawaiian Shirt" contest for all ages. We may even break out the limbo stick! There will be a chicken barbeque dinner available for purchase, or feel free to bring your own luau picnic supper. A spectacular fireworks display will light the skies over Red House Lake in the evening.

New this year, event attendees can check out a local vendor area sponsored by the Seneca Salamanca Chamber of Commerce.
