Don't miss the Target High Line Street Festival, our free celebration of the High Line's opening season, taking place this Sunday and generously sponsored by Target.
From 12:00 Noon to 5:00 PM, we'll take over Gansevoort Street between Ninth Avenue and Washington Street, in the Meatpacking District.
Come marvel at the World's Largest Lemonade Stand – in a 1,300 gallon custom-built Rosenwach water tank. The event will also feature inflatable sculptures, a reincarnation of the West Side Cowboy from the Federation of Black Cowboys , body painting, and performances by the Hungry March Band , Zona Del Barrio, and Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra , among many others.
An exciting array of hands-on activities including a special Target  "Hi from the High Line!" photo postcard booth, a "recycled trees" sculpture created with the Children's Museum of the Arts , and a Greenmarket: Youthmarket presented with the Council on the Environment of New York City , featuring corn roasting and cider making demonstrations and treats from local providers add even more fun to the day's activities.
Internationally-acclaimed balloon sculpture artist Jason Hackenwerth  will be on hand working on a large public balloon sculpture of flowers and giant insects, and silk-screen artists will help guests create their own free t-shirts, featuring images by artist Michael De Feo . The Festival will feature a reading of Peter Brown's The Curious Garden , a New York Times best-selling children's book inspired by the High Line.
Many thanks to Target for making this event possible.
