This party is going to stop traffic.

The Louis Armstrong House Museum will close off a section of 107th Street in Corona to throw its annual Jazzmobile Block Party on Thursday, Aug. 25.

To take place between 34th and 37th avenues, this free blow out will kick off with the usual crafts workshop hosted by the Queens Museum and a hula hoop extravaganza at 4 p.m.

Fulanito, a merengue group that has sold more than 5 million albums since its founding in 1996, is set to take the outdoor stage at 5:30 p.m. Consisting of Latinos who were born in New York City, this Latin Grammy-nominated group performs this Dominican musical genre in Spanish and English, always interweaving hip-hop and dance tracks into their songs.

The other big act on the schedule is Steve Kroon, who has a 7 p.m. starting time. The Harlem-born Kroon, who has been in the music business for almost 50 years, is considered to be among the best percussionists in the jazz world. He has recorded and performed with such legends as Aretha Franklin, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. His band is a high-energy electrifying Latin jazz sextet that blends Afro-Cuban and Brazilian music.

Plus, the Armstrong House will remain open until 8:30 p.m. on this day.
