There will be food trucks, offering some local exciting dishes!
Local artist Deborah Wasserman will lead a collaborative workshop at 4PM.The workshop aims to create a map of Jackson Heights, highlighting individual and communal experiences of our neighborhood. Participants will draw buildings, trees, streets, stores, cars and pavements and add them to the large map. Children and adults are welcome!
Throughout the day artist Kevin Marín will be recording sounds and comments to play back later in the afternoon as a sound installation specific to the 78th Street Plaza.
Finally, there will be music! Starting at 5 we will have two bands playing. First up is Kominas, a Pakistani-American punk bank, followed by Jackson Heights’ own Sonic Power Pops!
We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
