A Chaplinesque Way to Welcome the Fall

On Saturday, September 16, head over to Sunnyside Gardens Park for the annual Flick & Jazz in the Garden celebration, a fun, affordable, and family-friendly way to usher in the fall. The festivities start at 5 P.M. We suggest bringing a comfortable blanket or lawn chairs so you can kick-back on the grass and get ready for the live musical performances by great local jazz artists. At 7:30 the sun should be dipping under the horizon, which means classic cartoons like Popeye, Betty Boop, and Bugs Bunny will go up on the big screen. After a half hour of animated entertainment, you’ll be treated to the comedic genius of that most lovable tramp, Charlie Chaplin, in his classic short film The Rink. Beverages, popcorn, and other goodies from local vendors will be available for purchase along with the delicious pizza pies from Jimmy’s Pizzeria, a venerable Sunnyside institution. The suggested donation is $10, but you’re welcome to pay whatever you can.

Address: Sunnyside Gardens Park, 48-21 39th Ave (at 49th St), Sunnyside, NY 11104
