Street Games 2009 & Stickball 4 Kids

Street Games is an annual event that brings back the classic “street games” and introduces them to a new generation of kids (with a modern twist!) while recreating experiences and memories from another era. Street Games ’09 will feature “old school” activities like Stickball, wall ball, skully, yo-yo, hula hooping, pogo sticks, double-dutch, hopscotch, slap & rhyme, lemon twist, roller skating, and skateboarding.

For the more serious gamers, Street Games will feature live demonstrations and activities such as the New York Emperor’s Stickball League and the New York Knicks’ Groove Truck. Street Games 2009 is much more than just the games! We will feature musical performances of some of our favorite songs from the ’60s and ’70s to recreate those timeless grooves. Come to Street Games dressed in your favorite ’70s gear and win prizes!
