We’re still eagerly awaiting announcement of the schedules for the free concerts at Prospect Park and free movies at Brooklyn Bridge Park, which truly herald the coming of another beautiful Brooklyn summer. But for now we’ll take a teaser of some other free summer fun: Celebrate Brooklyn announced today it will hold three huge, free dance parties in Brooklyn Bridge Park this spring, the first of which is on May 10, less than a month away! The three events promise a beer garden, dance lessons, a bike valet and the always-sweeping views of BK Bridge Park that will make these probably the most scenic dance parties in Brooklyn. That first one is a Funk Party features the godfather of Go-Go himself, Chuck Brown; the second is a Brazilian dance party featuring a hip-shakin’ dance lesson; the final one is Zydeco party featuring some Creole classics and dance lessons provided by Jalopy.
