Celebrate the return of an East Village tradition

New York’s first community garden the Liz Christy (serving residents since 1973) celebrates the return of its annual Hat Party after construction at a nearby apartment building in 2004 put a temporary hold on the tradition. Sit by the garden's turtle pond in your best chapeau or make one at the event. Enjoy food and drink and bidding in a silent auction for local artists’ work and meals at neighborhood restaurants. The most creative hats win fabulous prizes. Rain date: May 9.
