Southampton Nonprofit To Sponsor Upcoming Bridgehampton Carnival

Jul 12, 2016 5:02 PM

For the first time, the Southampton Community Housing and Development Corporation will sponsor the Bridgehampton Carnival, which will be held Friday, July 15, through Sunday, July 17, and Wednesday, July 20, through Saturday, July 23, on the Konner property across from the Bridgehampton Commons.

The Housing and Development Corporation works to advance affordable housing initiatives throughout Southampton Town, helping to bridge the gap between members of the working population, the town and developers to fulfill affordable housing needs. The Bridgehampton Carnival is one of a number of future fundraising efforts, the proceeds of which will help offset construction and acquisition costs for future housing projects.

Curtis Highsmith, the executive director of the Southampton Housing Authority, stated that the future goals of the nonprofit were to play a larger role in supplying the means for affordable housing, through such efforts of community fundraising.

Carnival hours will be 6 to 11 p.m. each night. Individual ride tickets will be available for purchase, and bracelet nights will be held Friday, July 15, and Wednesday, July 20, through Friday, July 22.
