On Saturday, April 17, 2010, the City of New York Parks & Recreation and the Walt Disney Company will host the 3rd annual Street Games at Thomas Jefferson Park in Harlem.

Street Games brings back the classic street games from the ’60s and ’70s and reintroduces 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.

This year’s event will also feature skating boarding clinics and a costume contest for the most authentic outfit from the ’60s & ’70s.
