Time Out says

Dumbo Drop is back! Thousands of toy elephants will parachute from rooftops surrounding Washington Street at 5pm and 7:45pm (featuring illuminated elephants) as part of a larger fundraiser to support Dumbo’s Title 1 STEAM Schools, PS307 Elementary School and The Dock Street Middle School. The owner of the elephant that most closely reaches a target will win a $1,000 Dumbo shopping spree. (The second prize is an all-you-can-eat Oddfellows ice cream party for up to 25 guests and third prize is a Melissa Joy Manning Jewelry package (winner’s choice pair of earrings and a $100 gift card). The Grand Prize for the #DISCODROP is a Rooftop Party for ten on the Time Out Market roof, which includes reserved VIP seating, a $500 bar tab, and Fornino's Pizza. In addition, there will be a block party and events throughout the neighborhood from 3 to 8pm including free musical performances on three stages, 20 free kids activities in the Dumbo Archway, interactive arts experiences, and specially priced family-friendly menus. Check its website for the full rundown!
