It's finally beginning to feel like spring—what better weekend to welcome the Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg back to their outdoor posts? Make sure to head out to Park Slope's flea market at P.S. 321 (180 Seventh Ave between 1st and 2nd Sts) to start the season off with new family-friendly events in addition to the usual antique and vintage clothing vendors.

This weekend, the market will host a mini book-making workshop in partnership with 826NYC, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting young students and their writing abilities. Kids will have the chance to craft their own stories and design a book cover, leaving with their own bound creation in hand.
This is just the first in an extensive roster of kid-centric programs that will continue through the summer. Upcoming activities include dance lessons by Mark Morris Dance Center, physics experiments by Carmelo the Science Fellow and performances by the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music. Between noon and 3pm, families can jump in on the free happenings being offered. Check out the Brooklyn Flea website for the full schedule of events.
