We will take a 4 to 5 mile walk around Flushing Meadow Corona Park, site of the 1939 and 1964 World Fairs, visit the Queens Museum to view the Panorama of the City of New York and then enjoy the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival, including musical and martial arts performances and Dragon Boat races on Meadow Lake. See more about the festival here: Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival.
The festival is free, the museum has a suggested donation of $8.00. There will be Spanish and Asian food vendors in the park but we will not be passing any stores so bring food and drink or try out the vendors.
Meet: Take the 7 train to the Mets-Willet Point stop and walk across the pedestrian bridge to the park, we will meet by the benches outside the rest rooms that are at the end of the bridge. Currently there is no service advisory for the 7 train on August 9, check for any updates at MTA Service Advisories
