Treasure Island commissioner proposes festival

TREASURE ISLAND – For the past dozen years, Treasure Island has hosted a May event to celebrate the beginning of summer now known as “Sun, Sand and Swing.”

Commissioner Phil Collins would like to see a similar festival celebrate the end of summer, too. Collins has been working behind the scenes to organize a Labor Day weekend beach event that will feature classic rock bands tentatively scheduled for Aug. 30.

Elements of the festival would also be held at the city’s Community Center.

Included in the festival would be a classic car show. Collins has three bands lined up that would play two one-hour sets each. The bands would play from 2 to 10 p.m.

The cost of the festival would be roughly $23,000, not including insurance. But in Collins’ plan the festival would not cost the city a dime. He is looking to have sponsors underwrite the cost of the festival. In turn, the sponsors would be allowed to sell their wares and market their products at the festival

“The problem is finding the sponsors,” Collins said. “If we don’t have the sponsors, we won’t have it. We’ll find out by the next (commission) meeting if this will fly.”

The next City Commission meeting will be May 6.

Collins insisted he has no personal interest or benefit by staging the event.

“I’m doing this for the city,” Collins said. “I’m just trying to think of ways for our citizens to enjoy the city. I am thinking of a sense of community, to get Treasure Island more engaged.”
