The New York Times Square Block Party is another one of the "newer" events, having just been started in 1998, but since it's being held in Times Square (46th Street from Broadway to 8th Avenue, to be exact) you know it's going to be a whole lot of fun.
The festivities will be held on Sunday, June 26, 2011, from 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM. While strolling the route of the block party, you'll see merchandise and food by over 400 vendors, displayed in the style of a midway. They'll pride themselves on making sure their items are authentic. Many different ethnic groups will be represented, so you're sure to find something that appeals to you.
This is a very family-friendly event, and there are activities especially designed for children. Admission and all entertainment that will be held is free. So bring the whole family and enjoy the day at the 2011 New York Times Square Block Party.
