Thousands of people filled Cortelyou Road Sunday for this year’s Flatbush Frolic, which was hosted by the Flatbush Development Corporation. The event drew a diverse crowd from the community and beyond to eat delicious food, shop, listen to music and more.

Robin Redmond, the FDC Executive Director, said the event was a great success, “The Flatbush Frolic always brings out the best of our community. It is a privilege to showcase local talent on our main stage, Tot Lot area and throughout the fair. This year, we had record breaking numbers in both our participating vendors and “Frolic-ers”. We thank our sponsors and everyone who contributed their time and energy to this year’s Frolic.”

Here are some of our photos, and neighbors’ photos, from the Frolic – if you have any you’d like to add, send them to us at [email protected] and we’ll add them to this post!

  1. The music from all of the vendors, the main stage, and in the tot lot was TOO LOUD. Noise on that volume causes hearing loss and is most definitely not “family friendly.” Is the FDC going to pay for assisted hearing devices for everyone who attended in the future?

  2. Ya, I kind of agree with the original comment. It could have been phrased a little less combatively, but I regularly had to put my hands over my ears when walking by certain booths and the bandstand. The volume was certainly loud enough to cause hearing damage, but in general, this city isn’t super on top of recognizing this problem.

  3. If that were true, I’d be down with it. I can’t afford sets for every child as it is. And then I can’t imagine trying to convince them to actually wear them.

  4. Due to other events on my calendar, my friends and I went early and there is less music playing and at lower volumes at noon. I was a bit frustrated, however, by how few of the food vendors were ready to sell by then, an hour after the event was scheduled to begin. Lunch at noon? Is that an unreasonable expectation?

  5. At 11 AM the young people running the Tot Lot events had the music way up. Several parents had to ask that it be turned down. I don’t get the push back against healthy music volumes. Surely people are capable of enjoying music at volumes that do not cause hearing loss and make small children cry?

  6. This I totally agree with. Complaining about the stages is a bit much (what do people expect), but some of the vendors think that blowing out their speakers right in everyone’s ear is a good strategy for some reason.
