Summer officially starts this weekend and Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership is celebrating with a free party in the plaza.
Head to the Myrtle Avenue Plaza, located between Steuben Street and Emerson Place, for a night of music, dance and art on Friday, June 21. The Benny Lopez Latin Jazz Band will be bringing their sound to the solstice evening and instructors will be on hand to get the salsa dancing moving. You’ll also be able to watch art in progress as the group Art for After Hours creates an on-site installation celebrating the immigrant heritage of the community during the party. There will be free snacks and drinks and outdoor games to play as well.
While the event runs from 5 to 8 p.m. it is just one of many free programs taking place over the summer. Fitness classes, lunchtime concerts and art workshops for children are just a few of the offerings during the 2019 Myrtle Avenue Plaza Summer Series.
