Little Red Lighthouse Festival, NYC 10/6

On Saturday, October 6 from 12-4pm, the 20th Anniversary Little Red Lighthouse Festival will take place in Fort Washington Park, to celebrate the only remaining lighthouse in Manhattan.

This year’s event is hosted by New York Restoration Project (NYRP), Historic House Trust, NYC Parks, Riverside Park Fund and Urban Park Rangers. The free event will include tours of the lighthouse, live music and theater performances, arts and crafts, fishing clinics, readings and activities for the family. There will even be an up-close reptile experience!

The Festival celebrates the area and pays tribute to the popular children’s book, “The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge” by Hildegarde H. Swift.

Alita the Show

Alita the Show is a bilingual (English Spanish) show
with puppets and live music geared for children ages 3-10 years.

Princess Alita lives
in a world of luxury amidst the walls of her palace. She is oblivious
to all that surrounds her and knows little outside of her own
environment. One day she is sent on a mission that will change her
forever. Alita is a story for everyone that traces the roots of who we
are. It is a journey that follows a simplistic path and caresses the
fundamental values of mankind. Alita and her friends will make us fly
towards a hopeful future. 

There will be a FREE performance at Word Up (4157 Broadway @ 176th St) this Saturday February 18th at 1:00pm.
