The Oak Bluffs select board gave approvals for three outdoor events and appointed members to the zoning board of appeals and Martha’s Vineyard cultural council at a brief meeting Friday.

The board approved a request for amplified sound on July 21 at Waban Park for the Vineyard House Water Tasting. The event will offer prizes, a silent auction, food and water to those in recovery.

“It’s a spectacular event,” select board member Brian Packish said. “It’s really important to our community.”

The board approved another amplified sound request at Waban Park for the Martha’s Vineyard Marathon, alongside a one-day alcohol license for the event.

Lee Ann Yarbor spoke on behalf of the marathon. She said finishers 21 and older will be allowed one free beer at a tent set up by the marathon’s finish.

Board member Jason Balboni worried about the beer tent, wondering how underage drinking will be prevented.

Ms. Yarbor said there will be someone outside the tent vetting people as they enter, and no one will be allowed outside the tent with alcohol.

The board also approved road closures on Warwick and Masonic avenues for Art District Stroll events on July 9, August 6 and Sept. 3.

Also Friday, Abby Bender was appointed to the Martha’s Vineyard cultural council and Leah Brown was appointed to the zoning board of appeals.

Meeting one day after the annual town election, board members congratulated their colleague Gail Barmakian on her re-election to the board.

“Congratulations to Gail,” board member Ryan Ruley said. “It was great to see that many people out voting.”
