The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy kicks off its 2019 Spring and Summer programming season with the first event of the season. This FREE family-friendly event will take place at its new home on Pier 5 of Brooklyn Bridge Park and offers all ages the opportunity to watch their kites soar above the Manhattan skyline, while enjoying special activities exploring the science of flight.

The event will emphasize S.T.E.A.M (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) concepts such as wind tunnels, robotic air propellers, and outdoor adventures.

Kites will be available for purchase at the event, or participants can bring their own. Live music, stilt walkers, and face-painters will round out the event this year. So, pack a picnic and enjoy the first event of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s season.
