This one’s for the kids.

On April 30, the Fifth Avenue Family Festival returns to Park Slope for the second year in a row, with festivities for the whole gang along Fourth Street, between Washington Park and MS 51.

During the fair, hosted by the Fifth Avenue BID and the Park Slope-based children’s theater Puppetry Arts, get your fill of face paintings, puppet-making crafts, and prizes. Brooklyn Cyclones mascot Sandy the Seagull will also be there, overseeing a batting cage, and Stormtroopers and Jedi Knights will be ready for photo-ops, courtesy of the 501st Empire City Garrison and Echo Base Rebel Legion, two Star Wars fan groups.

“This event with Puppetry Arts proved to be an outstanding success last year,” said Irene LoRe, executive director of the Fifth Avenue BID. “And with all the BID does throughout the year, this one is 100 percent for the kids!”

Fifth Avenue Family Festival [Fifth Avenue and Fourth Street in Park Slope, (718) 768-3703], April 30 from 11 am to 4 pm. Free. For info, visit
