Brooklyn Bridge Celebration Continues -- What's On For Friday

We've been awed by the amazing Telectroscope and bedazzled by the fireworks over the Brooklyn Bridge -- anything else going on?

You betcha -- the 125th birthday party for the Brooklyn Bridge continues! Here's what's on for today:

Brooklyn Bridge Film Series: Pack a picnic dinner and enjoy the sunset at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge as DJs spin tunes. Stick around for an open-air showing of Walt Disney Pictures’ Enchanted (2007; rated PG), a modern-day fairy tale set in Manhattan. It will be preceded by two short historic films—Panorama from the Tower of the Brooklyn Bridge (1903) and Manhatta (1921). Music begins at 6pm; film starts at 8:30pm. This event is free—along with the popcorn. Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park, Dumbo.

Brooklyn Bridge Information Tents: The American Society of Civil Engineers and the Roebling Chapter of the Society for Industrial Archeology will offer guided tours of the Bridge through Sunday, 10am–5pm. Free, on the Brooklyn Bridge.

The Amazing Telectroscope: If you missed it yesterday, not to worry. The Telectroscope is operating till June 15. Fulton ferry Landing.
