We’ve hit the dog days of Summer for 2012 here in the tri-state area, which means we have another great batch of weekend activites to share! Highlights this weekend include the return of Summer Streets and the season debut of the New York Renaissance Faire!
Manhattan’s annual Summer Streets event kicks off tomorrow!
This year, the big highlight is a free zip line at Foley Square! The starting platform will be two-and-a-half stories in the air, and you’ll zip for 160 feet!
Summer Streets takes place from 7am to 1pm, banning cars from Park Avenue and 72nd Street down through Lafayette Street to the Brooklyn Bridge.
Sunday is Coast Guard Appreciation Day on board the Intrepid! Enjoy military demonstrations and hands-on activities for the kids.
The Intrepid’s free Summer Movie series continues tonight!
Tonight’s movie is Steven Spielberg’s original Jurassic Park with Jeff Goldblum! Bring a lawn chair or blanket on a first-come, first-served basis, gates open at 7pm.
Please be advised there is no alcohol allowed on board the Intrepid.
