PS 110 Hosts 5th Annual ‘Lower Eats Side Food Festival’ Tomorrow
Tomorrow afternoon, you can eat your way around the globe at the fifth annual “Lower Eats Side Festival.”
As in years prior, the PTA at Public School 110 (aka the Florence Nightingale School) on Delancey Street is once again hosting this international food and music festival. First held in 2015 on the 110th anniversary of the institution, this year’s food spread consists of family recipes from over 20 countries – a celebration of the diverse nationalities of the students who attend the school. Parent-chefs will prepare the tasty treats for all attendees.
And yes, the famed parental rock band “The Nightingales” will return this year with another highly anticipated performance. After all, they’re previous winners of the School District 1 family battle of the bands, held at the Bowery Ballroom. Also featured throughout the festival is a tag sale, raffles, family portraits and more.
“We have one of the most diverse schools in New York City, and we’d like to celebrate this fact with a food festival that we think rivals Smorgasburg,” said Naama Laufer, PTA President. “We have students of Dominican, Serbian, Spanish, Danish, Belorussian, Trinidadian, Hungarian, Bolivian, Filipino, Japanese, German and many more backgrounds attending the school. The school’s diversity inspired us to celebrate the food and culture of the Lower East Side with a festival for the neighborhood.”
It’s happening tomorrow at 285 Delancey Street (at Lewis Street), from 1 to 4pm, rain or shine. Entrance fee is $10, which includes food and entertainment.
