The children’s fair following the Eastern Parkway parade, always a highlight of the Great Parade, will move this year to Troy Ave. and Maple St., parade organizers have announced. The new location will provide additional room for the many rides, performers and food vendors that will feature at this year’s fair.
“This year’s fair will have more rides and more shows than any other year,” said Parade Organizer Shimon Hecht. “The new location will give us the space we need.”
Featuring for the first time at this year’s fair will be the Flippenout Extreme Trampoline Show, an acrobatic stunt show including 25-foot jumps, triple flips and twists, skis and snowboards—all from upon giant trampolines.
Also starring at this year’s fair will be a concert by Jewish singing great Shlomo Simcha, as well as a performance by the acclaimed Mitzvah Boulevard Puppets. A wide range of rides and food vendors will be available at the fair.
