Bay Ridge boogied till the dusk stole the sun out of the sky — thanks to party band Head Over Heels, which played as part of a series of free outdoor concerts in Brooklyn parks with a wow-some waterfront show.

Sweet tunes had the crowd up and on its feet — or at the very least, doing the wave from the comfort of a lawn chair — transforming 79th Street and Shore Road into an outdoor concert hall.

Doreen Conner, and Janice and Amanda Higgins, danced up a storm to the pulsating succession of beats while pint-sized spectator Olivia Nostro gleefully bopped on dad John’s lap — their jubilant jigs proving that our borough is ahead of the rest when it comes to offering simple pleasures that don’t wallop the wallet.

The series is hosted by Sen. Marty Golden (R–Bay Ridge), and co-presented by the Bay Ridge–Bensonhurst Beautification and Preservation Alliance, and the Southwest Brooklyn Parks Task Force, and features a super line-up through August, including disco, oldies and tribute bands playing musical homage to such classic headliners as Foreigner and Journey.

Easy, breezy live concerts were just the ticket to celebrate his community this summer, added Golden.

“They give us a local opportunity to get out of the house and enjoy fun filled evenings of entertainm­ent.”

All concerts are free and begin at 7 pm, except for Family Day at McKinley Park on Aug. 24 at 5 pm — and Alive N Kickin, set to dazzle on Aug. 7 at 4 pm.

Cancellations will be posted on the concert hotline by 5 pm if weather is poor.

For more information, visit or call (718) 236-7547 or Golden’s office at (718) 238-6044.
