Big Shot at Seabreeze Amusement Park

Follow RITNEWS on Twitter

As part of RIT’s 27th Big Shot, members of the RIT and Greater Rochester communities will head to Seabreeze Amusement Park to make the annual photograph on May 3.

The community event requires hundreds of volunteers to partake in the photo-making process. RIT photographers take long exposures while volunteers from the community “paint” the subject with light with flashlights and camera-flash units.

This year’s subject will feature numerous rides at Seabreeze, an amusement park in suburban Irondequoit. The park opened in 1879 and is the 12th oldest amusement park in the world. Anyone is welcome to participate in the Big Shot event.
