Over 400 people recently attended CCBQ’s 3rd Annual Summer Fun Festival at the Riverdale Osborne Courtyard in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Highlights included a guest appearance by St. John’s University mascot Johnny Thunderbird, face painting, arts and crafts and an awesome DJ. Families learned more about the resources available in their area and received fresh produce from apples to spinach.
