Traffic will be blocked all weekend in Park Slope, and this time it won’t be thanks to a doublewide stroller barreling down Fifth Avenue.
On Saturday, June 14, the 12th annual “Brooklyn Pride” activities kick off at 9 am with a 10K run in Prospect Park and a full day of events — including a street fair, parade (starting at 8:30 pm at 15th Street and Prospect Park West, and ending at Seventh Avenue and Lincoln Place) and after party — to celebrate Brooklyn’s gay community.
But don’t stay out too late, because on the next day, you could be in “Seventh Heaven.” The annual street fair, run by the Park Slope Chamber of Commerce, will set up food, music, games, shopping and more along Seventh Avenue, from Flatbush Avenue to 16th Street.
So whether you’re joining in or just watching the crowds go by, Park Slope is the place to be for outdoor action this weekend.
“Brooklyn Pride” will begin at 9 am on June 14 at 15th Street and Prospect Park West. All activities are free.
