Families looking for a way to spend their Saturday outdoors need look no further than “Street Games” in Harlem’s Thomas Jefferson Park. The festival’s aim is to get a new generation of kids outside and introduce New York City’s children to the world of classic, low-tech games. Attendees can try their hand at activities like hopscotch, stickball, yo-yoing, pogo sticks, and double dutch. Other activities include a soapbox derby, relay races, rollerblading, and a skateboarding clinic. In addition to the games, the festival will feature live music, food vendors, and performances by the Dance Theater of Harlem.
