This Saturday: Local Travel Expo

This coming Saturday, April 30th, is shaping up to be a busy day. There's the Family Fun Festival and Sidewalk Sale (more on that later this week). There's also a great event taking place at the end of Fifth Avenue (One Hanson Place) that you should know about.

Park Slope's own (and former Fifth Avenue merchant) is hosting a "Green Getaways, Local Food & Travel Expo" all day, from 11 am to 5 pm. Check out exhibits from more than 60 getaway destinations, from counties to towns to local farms and bed & breakfasts within a day's drive or train/bus ride of NYC. See how they are "going green." Plus, you'll find transportation companies offering special getaway packages, and show-only discounts!

Tickets $10 Online, $12 Door and Kids 10 and under are free.
