“Boardwalk Barrels of Fun,” the now-annual festive art competition and family fun event, will be held May 5 on the Riegelmann Boardwalk, between West 10th Street and West 12th Street (in front of Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park and Luna Park), from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Participants will get to flex their artistic muscles and paint otherwise not-so-pretty trash barrels with vibrant landscapes, seascapes and carnival-themed art as a way to spruce up the historic Coney Island boards in time for the summer beach season. Make sure to wear your painting clothes, and arrive by 10:00 a.m. to register.
The event is hosted by the city and City Councilman Domenic Recchia.
