Fire Island Black Out Is Relocating to Atlantic City 2015

Fire Island Black Out (FIBO), the annual midsummer LGBT weekend party in the iconic Long Island seashore resort, is moving to a new home this year. Philadelphia attorney James Wellons, CEO of the FIBO organization, announced today that his event would be relocating to Atlantic City, New Jersey, after FIBO 2014 was cancelled last spring. “The move will allow more people to attend our signature event,” says Wellons, “and while we are sad to leave Fire Island, our home of nearly 12 years, we view this move as an evolution in our event.”

FIBO executives “received a warm welcome” from Atlantic City officials last year, and talks with various municipal agencies led to the decision to relocate FIBO. This year’s event, entitled “FIBO-Atlantic City” is scheduled for August 7-9, and “will provide an array of entertainment options for our guests”, says FIBO Vice-President Chris Alston.
