The Third Avenue Festival, a Bay Ridge tradition in its 36th year, will have an eco-spin this year. It's the first "Green" Festival, and it will take place on Sunday, October 4, from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. along Third Avenue in Bay Ridge from 69th Street to 95th Street.
Vendors will be encouraged to enter green displays and attractions into a contest, and I'll be there as one of the judges.
Attractions already lined up are solar-powered hot tubs, thanks to Super-Roofer’s Bill Boshell, and solar-run cellphones, as well as energy-generating bicycles outside Mike Kaspar’s Tri & Runs at 81st Street.
The Green Pioneer Award will be announced at the 16th Annual Pioneers Champagne Cocktail Reception at the Café Remy on October 26.
