A four-block stretch of Bell Boulevard in Bayside will close on Sunday, Sept. 23, for the neighborhood’s biggest block party of the year.
The Bayside Village Business Improvement District will once again hold a “Sunday Stroll” along Bell Boulevard between 38th and 41st avenues, giving residents the chance to enjoy games, music and food from the area’s best restaurants.
The family-friendly event aims to promote businesses along the strip while also bringing residents together. According to Christine Silletti, executive director of the Bayside Village BID, guests can also expect to find a few surprises during the event.
Children can enjoy an array of free games as well as arts and crafts and performances from a bubble-blower and a magician. Employees at the Turn the Page Again bookstore will hold special a special storytime event for young children outside the shop, located at 39-15 Bell Blvd.
Most of the many restaurants along Bell Boulevard will also set up tables and chairs on the boulevard, and provide samples from their menus to guests.
Additionally, a large stage will be set up at the corner of Bell Boulevard and 40th Avenue for various music and dance acts, including local bands and students from the nearby Robert Mann Dance Centre.
