Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
This outdoor event draws more than 60,000 visitors each year to 135th Street, and no wonder: In addition to live R&B, rock and hip hop, there are vendors and activities for all ages. Kids will enjoy storytelling, double-dutch, face painting and lots of other family-friendly activities. Seniors can swim and take advantage of pool-friendly exercise demonstrations; college-bound attendees can network at the Higher Education Fair & Expo; aspiring designers can draw inspiration from the Fashion Flava Show, which showcases work by designers of color.
