Some of the fun annual events of the season are the Park Slope Fifth Avenue BID’s Summer Strolls, where portions of 5th Avenue and 7th Avenue are closed to traffic for a few hours in the evening so neighbors can enjoy the weather, dance, eat, and explore the street in a way we don’t normally get to.
This year, we’ve got four nights (instead of two) and two Saturday afternoons to look forward to, plus you can check out free performances of Shakespeare in the Parking Lot during those Summer Strolls!
Here are the dates for the Summer Strolls on 5th Avenue, which take place from 5-9pm:
Friday, July 18: 5th Avenue from 12th-18th Streets
