Yuliya Geikhman - Check Out Neighborhood Street Fairs
During the summer we love to visit all the local street fairs that pop up around my neighborhood in Kings County, Brooklyn. Sometimes they're huge Sony-funded events, and other times the only advertising they get is a home-made flyer on a lamppost. My husband loves the busy crowds and I love the fun stuff you can buy. My 1-year-old, Alice, isn't quite big enough to go on the pony rides, but she loves to watch the small horses and make animal sounds at them (which at the moment are an all-encompassing "Squeeee!").
