Starfish Rocks Carroll Park Today (Wednesday), Carroll Gardens

Carroll Park Concert Series presents Starfish today, July 29, bringing rock and roll energy and loads of kid-friendly activities to the park.

Here's the description from the Committee to Improve Carroll Park:

With five seasoned dads/musicians, NJ-based Starfish gives classic rock style a total makeover. The tunes mix witty lyrics with electric guitar, giving kids and grownups the chance to have fun together and dance to the music, doing air guitar moves and enjoying a bubble machine to enjoy songs that remind them of the 60's and 70's.

Extra attractions: The "Be a Brooklyn Reader: Summer Reading at our Local Library" will come to the park. The Carroll Park Branch of Brooklyn Public Library will be on hand to inspire and give information about summer reading and the library programs.

Also, Y Water, a new low calorie, organic beverage, will be available for free tastings (first come first serve).

Please come with pocket money for crafts and treats, including face painting by Gymstars and food and drink provided by Moxie Spot. Fun starts at 3:30, music starts at 4 p.m.

With neighborhood mom and volunteer Simmi Degnemark at the helm, the Series will end with a finale on August 8th, with rock world music icon Putumayo Kids at the park for a CD release party.

All proceeds benefit the Committee to Improve Carroll Park.

Carroll Park is located at President Street and Smith Street in Carroll Gardens Brooklyn - Take the F train to the Carroll Street Station

Kids will love the Y Water. My kids gulp the water so they can play with bottles. Y Water thought of everything with this drink. Here’s a YouTube link about how these were created. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43kKPXAvZy0
