The Neighborhood School’s beloved Holiday Fair is back! On Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm, come on out to support a public school and have a blast. There’ll be carnival games, arts & crafts, face-painting, print-making, henna and temporary tattooing, a huge kid-built maze (made of deconstructed cardboard boxes — the urban equivalent of a corn maze), a raffle, our famous silent auction and great food from your favorite neighborhood vendors.
Auction items up for bids this year include an autographed, limited-edition Handsome Dick Manitoba bobblehead, classes in trapeze, parkour and trampoline at STREB; gift certificates to fabulous East Village and Lower East Side shops like The Bean, Exit 9, Alphabet City Acupuncture, Sugar Sweet Sunshine, East Yoga, Saxelby Cheesemongers, Grace Heaven Organic Salon, il laboratorio del gelato and more; fabulous Trina Turk jewelry; memberships at MOMA and the Lower East Side Tenement Museum and many more. Bid online until Friday at 5 pm; live auction at the school on Sunday at 2:30 pm.
Admission to the fair is free and open to the public. Wondering what a progressive public school in the East Village is like? Come check us out! It’s a great (and cheap) way to have fun indoors with your kids on a cold winter’s day; you get to shop and nosh and your kids get to run around with their friends.
Proceeds from the fair support the Neighborhood School PTA, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization.
