Brown Memorial Baptist Church will host its Seventh Annual “Taking it to the Street” Community Street Fair Washington Avenue between Fulton and Gates avenues, August 23.

“Taking it to the Street” will provide access to information vital to the economic and social stability of the Brooklyn community.

Free healthcare services will also be provided, including a mobile blood donor station, HIV testing, and cholesterol and blood pressure screenings, and clothing will be distributed to anyone in need by the Brown Senior Missionary Society.

All of this will be provided during a day of family fun with food, rides, games and other kids’ activities. Children of all ages can participate in face painting, balloon sculpting, and basketball competitions.
