Musical, Magical Mayhem is a Hit in Sunset Park
Lots going on in the Park today. Despite a threat of rain, and a few actual rain drops, the first Wednesday of Fun in the Park was a huge success. Dikki Ellis entertained a large crowd of children and adults with juggling and magic for an hour. No small feat.
Even at the end of the hour, kids were still rapt and excited by his antics. Thanks to the City Parks Foundation, Friends of Sunset Park, and the City of NY Parks and Recreation for sponsoring the event.
After the show was over, some kids took advantage of the Play Mobile parked over by the flag pole. Hula hoops, sitting scooters, arts and crafts, board games, blocks, rings, and more were on hand to entertain those who stopped by.
One young lady let me take a photo of her completed masterpiece. It turned out quite well, I think.
