Upcoming: "Clean Up Coney Island"
The trash cans at Coney Island will likely be more colorful again this year. There's going to be a "Trash Barrel Design and Painting Contest" on the boardwalk on April 5. The Coney Island USA website has some brief information about it, calling it "Boardwalk Barrels of Fun!" It will happen on the Boardwalk at W. 10 Street from 10AM-2PM on Saturday, April 5. No word on prizes, but if you want to decorate a trash can that hundreds of thousands of people will see and that will end up in a lot of photos, your moment has arrived.
