The concert will take place on Saturday, May 18 at 6:30 p.m. Families can head over to Kissena Corridor Park West, near the intersection of Colden Street and 45th Avenue. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blanket or chair to use during the and wear their favorite Disney character outfits to enjoy the night’s festivities.

The concert features a family-friendly performance by the group The Little Mermen, a nationally recognized band that performs sing-along style songs from Disney movies.

Ung said she looks forward to bringing the group back to Flushing for a second free outdoor concert. “I look forward to seeing kids of all ages singing along to their favorite songs from Disney movies. Thank you to QPAC for partnering with my office to bring live music to Kissena Park,” she said. 

Susan Agin, QPAC’s executive and artistic director, said the band showcases years of nostalgic Disney music in the most fun-filled and uplifting ways. “One of the things I love most about this program is that there are generations of Disney fans who come to this concert.  Parents sit alongside their children and everyone has a great time,” she said.
