Celebrate the End of #USQSummer on August 10th
As summer comes to a close, join us for the final days of Citi Summer in the Square in Union Square Park to celebrate all the fun we’ve together at 9 weeks of free community programming. We’re bringing out all the stops for an endless day of fun on August 10th.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show
The off-Broadway hit, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show, based on Eric Carle’s famous book is coming back to the stage this fall at the DR2 in Union Square. Enjoy an exclusive preview of the show on the Citi Summer in the Square stage on August 10th at 11 AM! Enter on social media on August 10th to win tickets to the show.
Freeze Dance + Giveaways
In addition to our 11 AM performance, stick around for a game of freeze dance with Citi Summer in the Square’s Sarah Seeds on the South Plaza, plus maracas to take home!
Double The Face Painters
We’ve had so much fun getting our faces painted, making sand art, and enjoying snow cones at the Citibank tent all summer long. On August 10th, Citibank is bringing four face painters to the South Plaza for even more colorful fun.
Bubble Garden by The Gazillion Bubble Show
Back by popular demand, the Gazillion Bubble Show is joining us on Thursday, August 10th with an interactive bubble garden! Kids can create their own bubble fun with all different wand sizes from 12:00 – 2:30 PM. Stick around after the bubble show for sing-a-long story time with the 14th Street Y and PJ Library.
Celebrate #ThrowbackThursday with the 1980s hit Back to the Future on Union Square Park’s North Plaza. The first 500 attendees will receive Pret A Manger popcorn and a Citibank Seat Cushion.
Our beverage sponsors have kept us hydrated all summer long, and we’ve got even more to enjoy in the August heat! For all program participants, stop by the Union Square Partnership tent for a complimentary Pret A Manger water bottle. On August 10th, enjoy tea from Honest Tea on the South Plaza.
