THERE’S a party going on and you’re invited! The 22nd Annual Hunters Point Civic Association Community Unity Street Fair will take place this Friday, August 10 between 3pm and 7pm on 49th Avenue in front of Shady Park (aka Andrew’s Grove). It’s free and open to all and given that there will be bouncy houses and balloon animals means it’s kid-centric, as opposed to say the Secret Summer Cocktail Festival taking place this Sunday at the beautiful Foundry event space on Vernon Boulevard. There will be alcohol, live music, food and no kids. Finally, if Friday and Sunday events aren’t enough, there’s always MoMA PS1′s Warm-up Saturday afternoon/evening, which this week features …a whole bunch of DJ’s and musician’s that are probably great but who I’ve never heard of, Go!
