Outdoor summer events in Bay Ridge

Go play outdoors in Bay Ridge

Brooklyn Daily

Get out of the house and into the great Bay Ridge outdoors!

After a wet and possibly boozy Fourth of July weekend, dry out (literally and figuratively) in the Ridge with some al fresco events that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike.

A screening of “Mr. Poppers Penguins” at Narrows Botanical Garden (Shore Road at 72nd Street) on July 11 is perfect for both a night out with the family or a light-hearted date flick. In this 2011 romp, Jim Carey plays Mr. Popper, an uptight workaholic whose explorer father dumps a flock of penguins in his Manhattan apartment The screening starts at sundown — around 8:30 pm.

Rock out with your picnic blanket out at State Sen. Martin Golden’s Concerts in the Park series. The event hits Shore Road Park (Shore Road at 79th Street) on July 15 at 7 pm, where Radio Daze will kick out party jams from the ’70s and ’80s — including Bon Jovi, Thin Lizzy, Peter Gabriel, and the Cars.

And enjoy some culture beneath the clouds back at Narrows Botanical Garden on July 19, when local theater school Act-Out! Productions opens its Shakespeare in the Park production of “Othello.” The show, which features a combination of new students and professional actors, will run weekends through July 27. The performance starts at 7 pm and a $10 donation to the garden is suggested.
