Dumbo Block Parties!

We enjoy a Dumbo Block Party, and in that spirit, the first event in the annual DUMBO Block Party Series sponsored by the Dumbo Improvement District, in conjunction with local businesses, will be taking place on Saturday, June 2nd. It will include music, food, activities for children, and booths featuring products and services from local businesses, artists and community groups. More than 20 local businesses are sponsors. The party will take place on Main Street between Plymouth and Water Streets. The release for the event says:
Set against the Manhattan skyline, a stage with live entertainment will feature performances by popular children’s performer and educator AudraRox as well as a high-energy group of PS 29 students known as Toxic Muffin and DJs Emilee and The Dahkter. Activities sponsored by local businesses include entertainment from Halcyon music shop, arts and crafts from Half Pint and Jan Larsen Art and barbeque by Water Street Restaurant and Bubby’s. The NYPD, FDNY, and NYC Parks and Recreation Department will also be on hand with educational resources for all, including the FDNY’s Mobile Fire Safety House and the NYC Parks and Recreation Department’s Play Mobile.
Another Block Party is scheduled for September 8 at the Pearl Stret Triangle, but we don't even want to think about summer being over before it's even happened.
