Flatbush Frolic
The Flatbush Frolic may sound like a hip new dance all the kids are doing (and maybe it will be!), but it’s actually a fun street fair in south Brooklyn featuring music, crafts and kids' activities galore. An eclectic mix of bands and performers, including HEYLADY, Chevy Lopez and the The Lord Calverts, and several others, will be playing all day long on the Frolic’s main stage. There’ll be some spicy dance productions from the Latin Fever Dance Studio, and a smorgasbord of activities for kids: clowns, martial-arts lessons, hands-on science experiments from Kiddie Science and even kid yoga, because Lord knows children need to align their chakras after a long day out having fun in the sun. There’ll be food for everyone from Purple Yam and the Farm on Adderly, and the FDNY will even have an interactive "Smoke House" that will teach you what to (safely) do in a fire using fake fumes. Sounds pretty cool, we have to admit. An entire day of fun awaits!

The Flatbush Frolic is greater than the typical socks and sausages street fair!  Every year, live bands, food and merchandise dealers, artists and crafters perform and exhibit their unique wares – including an emphasis on local restaurants, musicians, businesses and artists – and games for the kids at this fair on Cortelyou Road in the heart of Brooklyn.
