Not your ordinary block party

The Ultimate Block PartyThis isn't just any block party. This is The Ultimate Block Party. On Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., kids, parents, educators, business leaders, authors, and researchers will be convening in New York City's Central Park to play. While they're at it, they will also be learning, exercising, challenging themselves, and enjoying fresh air.

Beyond having a grand old time, organizers hope to highlight just how crucial play is to childhood development and community health. This video says it all:

If that's not incentive enough to attend, Imagination Playground will have a booth where your kids can play with those famous blue blocks. Don't miss it!
