Local restaurants, a DJ and even a clown will be converging Tuesday at John Andrews Playground (Shady Park) Tuesday night to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Community Unity.
The event, held by the Hunters Point Community Development Corp., a neighborhood advocacy group that was formed in the 1950s, will feature food provided by more than 20 local restaurants, as well as music, Irish dancers, a DJ, a clown, a face painter and a bouncy castle.
The event, officially called “Community Unity,” is being organized by Hunters Point CDC president Terri Adams with the support of Brent O’Leary, president of the Hunters Point Civic Association. It will take place from 5pm through 8pm.
Queensborough President Melinda Katz will be presenting Adams with a plaque to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the event.
“This event shows that we are a strong neighborhood where people know each other and come together to celebrate,” O’Leary said.
