‘Funday Sunday’ attracts thousands of shoppers

Fun, fun, fun…

Temptation was at every turn as Smith Street – from Bergen to Carroll streets – was “curated” into a giant marketplace during a merchandise showcase presented by the South Brooklyn Local Development Corporation (SBLDC).

‘Funday Sunday,’ the borough’s premier art, dining, fashion, home furnishing and international foods district, played host to summer frolickers, who were feted by local restaurateurs, shopkeepers and vendors, showcasing the splendors of Brooklyn’s “BOCOCA,” an area comprised of Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens

Local businesses participated in the neighborhood celebration, whose organizers labor “to put smiles on every face, generate good vibes and good feelings.”

Dairy lovers plied their yen at the annual cheese-eating contest, which has grown into a “stinkfest,” outside the Smith & Vine Wine Shop, 268 Smith Street.

The store and its sibling stores, Stinky Brooklyn and The Jakewalk joined Chestnut Restaurant in sponsoring a full day of live entertainment on a stage, surrounded by tables and chairs with seating for 60 and a gourmet street food menu.

Performers ran the gamut from children’s entertainer Monica Taylor and the Dirty Sock Fun Time Band to a guitar salute to the area’s “Frenchness” by Franglais.
