Picture this- popcorn, cotton candy, rides, clowns, face painting, two Uncle Moishy concerts, and an afternoon of prizes and giveaways. Sounds like fun. What are we celebrating? Someone’s birthday? A holiday? The answer is back to school! Usually this time of the year is met with dread, but it doesn’t have to be. Let’s get the children pumped and prepared for a new academic year of learning and fun by throwing a party and showing them that the return of school is an exciting time.
Rain or shine, Plaza Auto Mall and the JCC of Marine Park is inviting all kids and families to join them as they host their highly anticipated annual Back to School Street Fair on This year, the event will be held at a new location, on Avenue N between East 29th Street and Nostrand Avenue.
In addition to all the excitement mentioned above, ID cards will be distributed to the children, and participants will get free knapsacks in a variety of cool colors for boys and girls. The knapsacks are filled with school supplies such as notebooks, papers, loose-leaf, crayons, pencils, markers, erasers, sharpeners, etc. (while supplies last). Available ticket times for pickups are from or To save time and make sure you get your knapsack, you can pre-register online at JCCMP.ORG. Although participants do not have to register to attend the event, a child must be present to receive the knapsack or school supplies.
Plaza Auto Mall is sponsoring the event to give back to the community and give a great day for the children in their neighborhood!
So, mark your calendars, and take the family out for a fun day of fun and school readiness. Tell your friends and neighbors; they will thank you!
