This Saturday: Family Fun Festival
Puppetry Arts and the Park Slope Fifth Avenue BID are teaming up once again to host the 5th Avenue Family Festival on Saturday April 30th 11:00-4:00. The free event will be held along 4th Street at 5th Avenue of Park Slope between Washington Park and MS 51.
Activities will include: face painting, puppet making crafts, and prizes. Explore the science of bubbles with the New York Hall of Science, make pizza box puppets with 7-11 of Park Slope, and create your own mask with Regal Cinemas. The event will also welcome the New York Fire Safety Education Mobile and the USMC Activity Patrol Van. Take a swing with Sandy the Seagull of the Brooklyn Cyclones at the baseball batting cage and meet the Good Neighbear of State Farm. Also patrolling the event will be fan favorites Stormtroopers and Jedi Knights from the 501st Empire City Garrison and Echo Base Rebel Legion. Taste the unique cuisine of Baluchi’s Indian Restaurant and Kappa Sake House of 5th Avenue and enjoy live performances by Waiting for Bobby, Coolsax Jazz Trio, and Tucker & Larson Jazz.
We hope to see you there! Here are some photos from last year's event!
