Classic outdoor games with a modern twist


DATE:                        Saturday, April 26, 2014


TIME:                          11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.


LOCATION:               Thomas Jefferson Park

                                    114th Street and First Avenue



DETAILS:                   Street Games, presented by NYC Parks and The Walt Disney Company, brings back the classic games and sports played by previous generations and gives them a modern twist. New Yorkers young – and young at heart – can visit our Classic Street Games zone and get moving with stickball, pogo sticks, hula hoops, double-dutch, yo-yos, and skateboarding clinics. 


                                    Or take it to the street!  Street Games closes 114th Street and Pleasant Avenue just north of the park to vehicle traffic, so kids can participate in a soap box derby, learn to ride a bike clinics, street hockey, and relay races.


                                    Test your skills in the Red Bulls Skills Challenge hosted by the New York Red Bulls soccer team or throw a disc with the New York Empire ultimate team on the soccer fields at Thomas Jefferson Park!


                                    Remember to stop by the passport booth to pick up a Street Games Passport.  Complete all of the activities on the passport and bring it to the Disney booth to redeem a prize!


                                    Street Games is more than just games – Radio Disney will be spinning music all day and there will be live music and entertainment, including several performances by the Dance Theater of Harlem!
