A juicy end-of-summer adventure %u2013 and then some %u2013 was in store for revelers as they marched to the jaunty beat of Brooklyn’s premier party, the Flatbush Frolic, complete with a pizza-eating contest.

Sponsored by the Flatbush Development Corporation (FDC), festivities for the annual street spectacle drew thousands of fun-lovers to Victorian Flatbush on Cortelyou Road %u2013 between Coney Island and Flatbush avenues %u2013 where they sampled the best of Brooklyn and made merry at scores of vantage points and exhibitor booths, plus polished up their chompers for the tastebud-tingling tourney at San Remo Pizza, 1408 Cortelyou Road, won by Brooklyn wolfer Neil Clairmont, who engulfed six slices in 10 minutes.

Marching bands, community groups and costumed performers helped transform the avenue into a dynamic boulevard of wondrous sights and sounds.

Showstoppers lining the route included an assortment of live entertainment performed by local bands. Vying for attention along the way were dozens of vendor booths, offering tempting foods, wares and other goodies.

The Flatbush Frolic was established by a group of residents 32 years ago who wanted to celebrate their neighborhood.
