Astoria Weekend Edition 28.04.06

This weekend should be nice and sunny, a welcome relief from that gross rain from last weekend. That sure was a bummer, and it cancelled a few things having to do with the Earth Day Celebration. Activities have been rescheduled for this weekend, and on Saturday there are a bunch of things to do at both Rainey Park and Socrates Sculpture Park, the LIC Boathouse (free canoe rides!), as well as a Waterfront Walking Tour put on by the Greater Astoria Historial Society. The full details can be found on the Astoria/LIC Waterfront website.

The Street Fair season is also beginning this weekend, and on Sunday the fair will be on Steinway Street between 28th & 34th Avenues, sponsored by the Central Astoria LDC. Come out and eat some street meat, enjoy the sun, and pick up a few things, all between 11am and 6pm.

For something a little different, stop by The ARTSPACE at the Athanasiades Cultural Center (30-98 42 St, corner of 31st Ave) and check out the work of figurative and comic book drawing artist Dionisios Kavvadias. On Sunday there is an opening reception from 12-4pm for his show RetroActive: A Collection of Old and New Drawings. And on Sunday night, head over to the Irish Rover (on the corner of 28th Ave and 38th Street) for Quiz Night at 7pm. This is going to be a regular Sunday event. Bring yourself and a few friends, then form a team and compete for cash!

More fun, here.
