On Saturday, April 21st between 1pm and 5pm, Downtown Brooklyn is celebrating Earth Day by organizing a block party on Albee Square and Albee Square West. The “environmentally-friendly music troupe” Bash the Trash will put on a concert for attendees, lead a parade, and help kids build instruments made from recycled products. Other events include an all-ages dance class led by Dodge YMCA and DJ Mike Doelo, and sustainable arts and crafts workshops.

Free Arts NYC is also partnering with City Point to bring to life a 100% recyclable giant maze. Come with your family and friends for a scavenger hunt inside, or view an exhibit by Brooklyn SolarWorks to learn more about solar energy. The full schedule of events can be found here.
