Celebrate ‘Egg Rolls, Egg Creams, and Empanadas’ with the Eldridge Street Synagogue on Sunday
The annual block party celebrating a trifecta of treats – egg rolls, egg creams, and empanadas – is hitting the streets of the Lower East Side this weekend. Yup, now in its 17th season, the Museum at Eldridge Street’s festival will once again commemorate the diverse communities of the neighborhood, by way of food, performances, games, and hands-on demonstrations.
As in years prior, there will be performances by Frank London and band, the Chinatown Senior Center Orchestra, East River Ensemble, and Cantor Eric Freeman. Puerto Rican bomba music will fill the streets, while Hebrew and Chinese scribal art is showcased. Other activities include yarmulke making, Puerto Rican mask making, and plenty of of mah jongg to go around. Plus, you can watch food demos, including how to make kreplach, dumplings, and empanadas. And, lest we forget, there will be kosher egg rolls, egg creams, and empanadas for sale.
Festivities kick of this Sunday, June 18 at noon, at the Museum at Eldridge Street (aka Eldridge Street Synagogue).
