Lots going on today! Get out and enjoy your Sunday and all our city has to offer! From the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival to Summer of Hamilton at the NY Historical Society, our city has something for everyone.
ALL DAY – Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival
Flushing Meadows-Corona Park
Travel to beautiful Hong Kong without ever leaving the city thanks to this annual event at Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, now in it’s 26th year. Around 180 teams gather at the lake to race on long boats while paddling to the beat of their boat’s drummer at this culture fest inspired by Chinese tradition. On land, you can join in on the fun with music and dance performances, martial arts demonstrations and food-court vendors selling Asian cuisine like steamed dumplings, pork-belly buns and frozen delights such as Sno Biz shaved ice.
Summer of Hamilton at the New-York Historical Society – 1PM and 3PM
Iconic View Tour in Central Park – 2-3:30PM
FREE Zumba Class – 4:30-6PM
Paul McCartney at MetLife Stadium – 8PM
The relentless Beatle returns to New Jersey for the first time in 14 years with this one-night show (the only in the tri-state area on his One On One tour). Hard to say what you’ll hear at the show—between his solo releases, The Wings and of course his time with the Beatles, he’s got an enormous catalogue of material to draw upon. The thing about Macca, though, is that every song in that archive is a classic. Tickets $19.50–$275
