[Credit: Whitney Browne]The Fourth Arts Block organization is back in action with their 10th annual block party on the Lower East Side. This year’s festival will once again enrich and entertain with live, diverse performances and exhibits for all ages. As in prior years, it will showcase sustainability in a variety of forms, offering up ways to go about a greener lifestyle. There will also be hands-on activities, an assortment of neighborhood purveyors, and a 20 ft. tall inflatable pink bunny. Yup.

From the mailbag:

This one-day-only arts explosion features FREE performances and exhibits that promise fun for all ages. Attendees can sample tasty bites from local food vendors while enjoying dance, theater, and music by artists from across the Lower East Side (and beyond!). All performances will take place across numerous indoor and outdoor stages and sites on East 4th Street.

It’s happening on September 28 from 1-5PM, on East 4th Street between 2nd Avenue and Bowery. Check out the jam-packed schedule of events here.

The organization also has a Kickstarter page to help support a “stage raising” (an urban version of a barn raising); they are more than halfway to their goal.
