***KIDS DAY AT BLOOMBERGVILLE*** – JUNE 25, 2011Posted: June 26, 2011
As Bloombergville gears up for the large rally and demonstration against the budget cuts on June 28th, we decided to kick back on a Saturday afternoon and have a Kids Day Party across the street from Bloombergville in City Hall park. There was food, face-painting, and drumming. Parents brought their children and it was a lot of fun for everyone.
Check out the gallery:
But this is no fun: $50 million dollar in cuts are currently proposed for the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. Don’t let Bloomberg cut down the imagination of our kids. Show your support, come to Bloombergville — stay for an hour or bring a sleeping bag and stay for the night — and join the fight against these cuts!
