LIC Springs Back



“Although we are unable to host LIC Springs Back! as a massive in-person event on Vernon Boulevard as usual, the current situation presents us with the opportunity to do something new and exciting for this year’s event. By combining small in-person events throughout Long Island City with virtual offerings, over 3 days of fun, we will showcase #LICLocal businesses and organizations through their fun, creative, and innovative activities that can be experienced safely by groups of all ages. We highly encourage everyone to not only attend the event, but also to share this information far and wide. Let’s celebrate the resiliency and creativity of LIC and spring back together as a community.”
