Santa's final visit to Fifth Avenue and his stop at Du Jour Bakery are not the only cool holiday events happening in Park Slope on the 21st. It's also happens to be the Winter Solstice and, as such, our friends at Make Music NY are planning a five-borough musical celebration, much like their popular event on June 21st which welcomes the summer.
Sure, the event isn't on Fifth, but it is a great way to celebrate the start of winter and a cool community happening that you should check out (after you spend your day on Fifth, of course):
Blink gathers the city’s seasoned and casual cyclists to perform a new piece for bicycle bells by composer Merche Blasco. Riders travel through Prospect Park, following a score transmitted from the lead bike via a special helmet pre-programmed with lights that cue bicycle bells of different pitches. Through the piece, riders will collaborate with each other and generate music that interacts with the soundscape of the area. Bicycle bells will be distributed to participants at the beginning of the parade.
