LGBTQ Pride Celebrated at Open Streets Montague This Sunday, and at Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday, June 8

This Sunday, June 2, the theme of Open Streets Montague will be “Celebrate Pride on Montague.” From noon until 4:00 between Henry and Hicks staff and volunteers from the Brooklyn Cat Cafe will help you make tie-dyed Pride bandanas. From 2:00 to 3:00 near the tent between Henry and Hicks the Brooklyn Irish Dance Company will present “Reimagine Irish Dance”, providing gender inclusive lessons and performance. From 3:45 to 5:00 under the tent in front of Saketumi at 118 Montague, between Henry and Hicks, there will be “Siren Songs with Bouy the Mermaid Opera Singer.” She and her pirate piano accompanist Capt Emma will do two shows, one beginning at 3:45 and the other at 4:15. From 12:30 to 1:00, near the same tent, HYPE Dance Community will host a dance party for kids under 5 where they can “de-stress and have a blast.” From 1:30 to 3:30 between Clinton and Henry Elite Bklyn Jumpers will demonstrate and give lessons in Double Dutch rope jumping. From noon to 5:00 the newly renovated Haagen-Dazs store at 120 Montague, between Henry and Hicks but near Henry, will give a free mini cup of ice cream with every purchase. There’s even more going on, including several local businesses offering free classes to get or keep you in top shape. A complete schedule of what’s available is here.

Montague Street will be closed to vehicular traffic between Clinton and Henry streets and between Henry and Hicks streets from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM Sunday. Parked cars on those blocks will have to be moved before 10:00 AM.

On Saturday, June 8, from 4:00 to 9:00 PM at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 3 Plaza, the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy will host its “Big Summer Pride Twirl,” an all-ages free dance party presented by Papi Juice, with sets by DJs Venus X and Kia, and a performance by drag queen Essa Noche. It’s for “all ages,” but those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. There’s more information and RSVP here.
