Bicycle-powered floats. Mobile sculptures. Origami architecture, marching bands, hot dogs, and dance performances. Everything is welcome but flame-throwers and ketchup.
Lion VS Gorilla (LVG), a curatorial collaboration that uses experiential art to build community, is partnering with Version12 to create the First Annual Bridgeport Day, on May 12, 2012! Bridgeport Day is a celebration of the diverse communities that make up the neighborhood, and will be a fun, relaxed day where neighbors can meet, talk, mingle, and celebrate the community.
Join us for the Bridgeport Day Community Parade, as it winds down Morgan Street from the Zhou B Arts Center (35th St.) to Benton House (31st St.), from 2:00 to 3:00. At 3:00, the Bridgeport Day Block Party begins, at Benton House. There will be everything from a kimchee deathmatch battle (aka kimchee cook-off) to 12 pop-up operas with artisanal ice cream pairings to Bridgeport history storytelling to musical performances to a three-legged race, because running is better when someone else is tied to your leg. There will even be a petting zoo!
