Top 5 Reasons to Come to Make it Sweet!

During Make It Sweet! on Saturday, July 23, you can enjoy a whole day of family fun on the High Line: get your hands dirty in our mobile garden, create a large-scale art installation with an artist, hear stories from everyone's favorite librarian, design custom-made structures with the Children's Workyard Kit, and watch an outrageous variety show with the performers of Whoop Dee Doo.

Here are five great reasons to come to Make It Sweet!:
