The town’s media sponsor is KJOY 98.3.
“When many local municipalities were postponing or cancelling programs during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town of Hempstead was creating innovative options for our residents to enjoy recreational or entertainment options,” Supervisor Clavin said. “The Drive-In Movies series was one of the town’s most popular programs in 2020 and early 2021 and we are happy to bring back it back for another run for the enjoyment of the residents of America’s largest township.”
