Astoria Park Shore Fest blocks traffic on Shore Boulevard for the length of the park, providing a waterfront setting for food, live music and family activities over the course of three Sundays. Get physical the first Sunday with "We Like to Move It," featuring fitness classes on the park lawn (Aug 3). The next week, "Taste of Astoria" (Aug 10) features tidbits from local vendors and a picnic in the afternoon. The all-ages fest closes with "Make Shore BoulevART" (Aug 17), which, as you can tell by the name, is all about art. Paint, play music, dance and enjoy the creative booths scattered throughout the green space. Shore Blvd between Astoria Park South and Ditmars Blvd, Astoria, Queens (nyc.gov). Subway: N, Q to Astoria Blvd. 1–6:30pm.
