The Ridge is soakin’ up the sun!
Take advantage of the extra hours of sunshine this weekend with an outdoor beer garden, country fair, and a pair of park-side concerts.
Don your cowboy boots and break out your Western drawl for the Saint Patrick Parish Country Fair and Flea Market (9511 Fourth Ave. between 95th and 97th streets). The weekend-long shindig kicks off Friday at 8 pm with some good ol’ fashioned beer and barbecue. Chow down on ribs and wings as you sip on a 12-ounce draft at the outdoor beer garden, while eclectic pop-rock-country group Hello Brooklyn sets the mood. And a photo booth will make sure you can take home a tipsy momento. The party will cost you $5 to get in — and be sure to have your driver’s license handy. It is for those 21 and older only.
On Saturday, embrace your inner bargain hunter at the flea market portion of the weekend hootenanny, which lasts from 9 am to 6 pm. Dive into a selection of Elvis Presley memorabilia, fine china, knickknacks, and vintage threads. And when you are tuckered out from haggling, slow your roll with some calming crafts, or sink your teeth into a burger or pulled pork sandwich. Unlike the first day, admission is free of charge, and the market continues on Sunday.
On Sunday you can enjoy the nice weather at a pair of outdoor concerts along Shore Road Park. Bust out a blanket and picnic basket and settle in near the gazebo at Shore Road and 90th Street for the Sing For Hope Pianos 2017 Concert Series, featuring pianist Gregory Post and soprano Anna Tsoukala serenading the crowd. After the show, pack up and stroll down the park to 79th Street and Shore Road for the latest in the Concerts in the Park 2017 series, where classic rockers the Groove will get you twistin’ and shoutin’ at 7 pm.
