High Line & Target Celebrate the High Line
Target High Line Street Festival 7/12/2009 12:00 PM – 7/12/2009 5:00 PM
Join us on Sunday, July 12 for the Target High Line Street Festival — a free, fun-for-the-whole-family party celebrating the opening of the first section of the High Line. The occasion will also mark the 10th Anniversary of Friends of the High Line and the 75th Anniversary of the High Line itself.
The festival will feature internationally-acclaimed artists, inflatable sculptures, cowboys, story-tellers, marching bands, swing bands, salsa bands (some on a roof-top stage), and an exciting array of hands-on activities including a special Target “Hi from the High Line!” photo postcard experience for kids of all ages.
With a focus on sustainability, the festival brings together some of the healthiest and tastiest foods for a special greenmarket. While there, it will be hard to miss the World’s Largest Lemonade Stand, with well over a thousand gallons of fresh lemonade blended inside a specially-designed Rosenwach rooftop water tank. Children can also enjoy a live reading of Peter Brown’s bestselling, High Line-inspired children’s book The Curious Garden. Come join us to celebrate the historic opening of the High Line.
Many thanks to Target for making this event possible.
