The Great Dumbo Drop
September 27 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The DUMBO Improvement District is hosting its third annual Washington Street block party between York and Plymouth Streets. The cornerstone events of the evening feature spectacles which send thousands of parachuting souvenir elephants onto Brooklyn’s most photographed block from the rooftops surrounding Washington Street at two times:
-6:00 p.m.: the Classic #DUMBODROP
-7:45 p.m.: the brand new #DISCODROP, featuring illuminated souvenir elephants
Individuals are encouraged to enter one or both Dumbo Drop events for a chance to win prizes for the souvenir elephant that most closely reaches the target. Individuals can enter the contest online by visiting https://dumbo.is/dropping-elephants. Entries must be received by September 26th. Funds raised from the DUMBO Drop support DUMBO’s local Title I Public STEAM Schools.
The Washington Street block party features food from neighboring eateries, plus a variety of other activities and musical entertainment. An afterparty will be held in the Dumbo Archway from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
