Seneca Lake Big Splash, Ten Bands, Hector Fair Grounds September 4, 2011

The Big Splash concert series is headed to the Seneca Lake Wine Trail!  On Sunday, September 4th we will be bringing the Finger Lakes GrassRoots Festival Dance Tent to the Hector Fairgrounds to protect New York State waters and businesses from dangerous natural gas drilling. Seneca Lake is literally under pressure from both Shale Gas Fracking and Inergy’s proposed expansion of LPG Storage at Salt Point in the Town of Reading.  We believe that our Wine and Tourism Industries are far to important to the Health and Well Being of the region to jeapordize.

Educational Speakers join with musicians on Sunday Sept. 4 at the Seneca Lake Big Splash!  Music schedule is further below.

Dr. Sandra Steingraber, Phd. 3:30, Dance Tent
Dr. Adam Law, M.D., 5:00 Fresh Air Stage
Dr. Robert Howarth, Phd 5:30 Dance Tent
Joseph Campbell, Gas Free Seneca, 7:30 Dance Tent

Please come out and help us celebrate and protect our Number One Economic Resource, Clean Water!
