    This sounds like a nice event. What will spoil it: If all of the locals are allowed to barbeque(meaning breathing in a constant stream of lighter fluid/charcoal smoke) play loud music, smoke weed, and shoot off fire works – like they did at the Celebrate Brooklyn Dance event. It was a horrible day at the park. Nobody were minding their children and the children ran up/down and across people sitting on the ampitheater steps to watch the stage show. Hope someone enforces rules at this event.

      That’s part of the charm of any event for me. Bring on the BBQ, lighter fluid, loud music and children running amok!
