On Saturday, May 7, 2011, NYC Parks and the Walt Disney Company will host the 4th Annual Street Games at Thomas Jefferson Park in Harlem.

Street Games brings back the classic street games from the '60s and '70s and introduces them to a new generation with a modern twist! Pogo sticks, double-dutch, hula hoops, and yo-yos are just some of the activities that you and your family can try out to the sound of Motown, Rock N Roll, and Soul. With tons and tons of activities, there will be something for everyone to enjoy!

Get moving the old school way with:

  • Pogo sticks
  • Skateboarding clinics
  • Hula Hoops
  • Double-Dutch
  • Stickball
  • Hippity Hop
  • Paddle Ball
  • Yo-yos
  • Knicks Groove Truck

New activities this year include:

  • Soccer Clinics
  • Skybounce Handball Clinics
  • Learn to Ride Your Bike (must bring your own bike)

Street Games 2011 is much more than just the games! Music and dance performances to some of our favorite songs from the ’60s and ’70s will help recreate those timeless grooves.

And don’t miss our Community and Healthy Zone, which features non-profit groups in the community and lets people know about the resources available to them.
