Culture on the Cheap
SATURDAY: Kent Street Festival
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Another item in the growing roster of things to do this weekend is Greenpoint’s very own (and 13th annual!) Kent Street Festival. I have attended this event on and off over the years. Despite what the above poster intimates this is a very child-centric affair. Face-painting, carnival rides and pony rides are among the usual staples. Bigger kids and bargain hunters might be more interested in the stoop sales, vendors (jewelry, clothes and not surprisingly sausage are prevalent) and bake sales.
If you’re in the area swing by. It’s a nice (and inexpensive) way to while away an hour or two with the young ‘uns.
