Bring the kids to the LIC Flea this weekend.

This weekend the LIC Flea & Food will be “children central” with events featuring puppets, face painting and much more fun.

The popular Long Island City flea market will have Brooklyn-based Puppetsburg performing puppet shows, featuring hipster and tattooed puppets, for children up to 4 years old. There will be three performances throughout the day, the first at 10:45 a.m., then 12:45 p.m. and 2:15 p.m. Each show involves music, dancing and a brand-new puppet story.

Children will also be able to enjoy time in a bounce house, getting their faces painted, doing spin art sponsored by the ny k!ds club and entering a chance to win a free class, snapping pictures in a photo booth, mat fun for the little ones and a surprise special appearance by a princess.

The LIC YMCA will also be present providing activities, such as soccer skills, and visitors can enter to win summer memberships.

Visitors should also check out these following kid-centric vendors at the market: Linty Toes, Lowleepop, Layla Tov Monster, Tiny-you, Hocks Out Press, Custom Critters, Eight Thousand Miles, Ice & Vice, Ice Riders and more.

LIC Flea & Food is open every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is located at the outdoor lot by the waterfront at the corner of Fifth Street and 46th Avenue.

After enjoying a fun-filled Saturday in Long Island City, visitors can stop by the Astoria Flea & Food at Kaufman Astoria Studios every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. this summer at the outdoor backlot of Kaufman Astoria Studios at 36th Street and 35th Avenue.

Initially the Astoria Flea was expected to run for eight consecutive Sundays starting in May, but now will stay open until August 31.
