This Sunday from Noon to 4PM is your LAST CHANCE to Boogie on The Boulevard in 2015 for this 3 Sunday summer event which closes off the center lanes of The Grand Concourse between 161st and 167th Street—a full 7 city block stretch—transforming this area into a huge an approximately 4.75 acre recreational space filled with fitness and health activities, art, dancing, bike riding, skating, performing arts and so much more!

This Sunday will also have a special treat for everyone: Morris Perk will be popping up inside The Bronx Museum serving their popular Bronx Blend coffee, limeade, and delicious pastelitos (aka pastelillos aka empanadas) made locally right here in The Bronx supporting other Bronx women owned businesses! (The last two times Morris Perk served all of this deliciousness, they sold out so make sure to get there early before they are all sold out! (PS: We just love how Morris Perk pops up all over The Bronx at so many events!)

Boogie on The Boulevard has expanded to twice its size this year as compared to the first event last year which spanned 3 blocks for 3 consecutive Sundays in August and had a turnout of 2,500 during that time.

This year, the first two Sundays have surpassed that record with 3,500 people showing up with 2,600 last Sunday alone! We really would love to see if we can hit 10,000 and I’m SURE we can get 6,500 Bronxites out to enjoy our “Main Street” in a way would never think of it.

Can’t wait to see you there. In the meantime, check out all the fun you’re missing below! (click an image to start the slideshow!)
