Annual festivities hit the north end of the borough as a celebration – once rated the “Best Street Festival” in New York City – was put on by the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation (AALDC).
The 42nd Annual Atlantic Antic held on Sunday, September 25, spanned 10 Brooklyn blocks – Fourth Avenue to Hicks Street – along Atlantic Avenue and had the same amount of fun, food and good cheer on deck as it always does.
“The 42nd Atlantic Antic Festival was a celebration of our Brooklyn communities and a special day to showcase our Atlantic Avenue Merchants so visitors can see all the amazing shops and delicacies we have to offer,” said AALDC’s Executive Director Tammy Ben-Eliezer-Baxter. “We invite everyone to come back to our ‘Atlantic Avenue in Living Color’ post festival promotion from October 1 to 16 to receive discounts, free giveaways and promotions.”
The longstanding tradition lasts from noon to 6 p.m. and always features international delicacies, unique merchandise with over 500 vendors, 100 local merchants, 15 live music stages and one entire block dedicated to family-friendly fun.
Spanning four different nabes in the borough, the festival rakes in hundreds of thousands of people each year, according to AALDC.
