Looks like it’s going to be another scorching weekend. Fortunately for those of you who’ll be stuck in town like me (and don’t want to even think about fighting for a spot in the sand in some overcrowded city beach), there will be plenty of events going on to take your mind off the heat.
First off, the Queens County Farm Museum will be hosting its 32nd Annual Thunderbird American Indian Pow Wow, kicking off on Friday, July 23rd. There will be three days of intertribal dance competitions, featuring over 40 Indian tribes, as well as Native American food and crafts for purchase. This event is spectacular for people of all ages, young and old, and should not be missed. Admission prices are $9 for Adults and $4 for Children under age 12. All weekend passes are available as well at $15 for Adults and $5 for Children under age 12.
Friday, July 23rd: 7pm-10pm (gates at 6pm)
Saturday, July 24th: 12pm-5pm and 7pm-10pm (gates at 10am)
Sunday, July 25th: 12pm-5pm (gates at 10am)
The Queens County Museum is located at:

The festivities will take place in the Apple Orchard on the farm grounds.
Next up, the Lower East Side BID will be hosting the last of its series of Stanton Street Summer Sundays events, this Sunday, July 25th, beginning at noon. Another all ages event, this weekend’s festivities are going to include:
