Celebrate the first official weekend of summer at the grand finale of our June One Day Plaza series on the northwest corner of West 97th Street and Columbus Avenue.
We kick off the day with a grand musical parade led by the esteemed Shinbone Alley Stilt Band. Everyone is invited to join in the fun – particularly families with young children. Come as you are or dress up for the event. Beginning at 10:00am, professional costume designers from Dancing Designers at Musical Theater Builders will help direct children in a hat making activity. The parade will start promptly at 11:00.
Following the parade will be a full day of activities, including more live music from the Shinbone Alley Stilt Band, local musicians from The Juilliard School and Manhattan School of Music and a return visit from banjo extraordinaire, Zack Orion.
Show up early for free morning coffee and stay all day for treats from local retailers. Enjoy it all at our outdoor tables and seating with board games. Fun for the whole family!
This FREE event is part of the New York City Department of Transportation’s One-Day Plaza program.
