I got that sunshine in my pocket
Got that good soul in my feet
When it’s 55 degrees in June it’s chilly, when it’s 55 degrees in January it’s balmy, go figure. Either way it’s expected to warm up and get sunny in the next few days so enjoy these upcoming outdoor activities.

INSITU Site-Specific Dance Festival – not until July 8-9 when it arrives on the LIC waterfront like a herd of buffalo: 24 choreographers and companies have created new works in response to the urban and natural environments of four public parks along the Western Queens waterfront, Hunters Point South Park, Gantry Plaza State Park, Queensbridge Park and Socrates Sculpture Park. Over the 2-day, 14 hour event, performers will maneuver through playgrounds, appear in hidden corners, and dance on piers, staircases, and shorelines. The festival is free and open to the public, offering audiences a fresh and exciting way to experience contemporary dance in public spaces.
