It's been a stacked summer of outdoor festivals, but count on the city's largest and oldest fest to end the season with a bang. The free celebration of local art, food and business hits downtown Brooklyn for its 44th year, boasting over 500 booths and 12 music stages on ten blocks. The festival runs from noon–6pm.

This year's "Pulse of Brooklyn" runs on Atlantic Ave between Hicks Street and Fourth Ave, crossing through Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill and Downtown Brooklyn along the way.

Performances come from a lineup including Brooklyn United Marching Band, Batala New York, House of the Lord Church Choir, bands like the Camermen and the Get It, and a host of local DJs. As always, look out for the annual dumpling eating contest, which gives competitors two minutes to chow down on an obscene amount of steamed puffs.

Be sure to pace yourself, lest you find yourself eating a different meal at every block.
