Montague Street Summer Space Set for Sunday

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS — Montague Street’s fourth-annual Summer Space on Sunday, Sept. 18, will be a day of fun and free activities.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., two blocks of Montague Street, between Clinton and Hicks streets, will become a pedestrian plaza with games, performances, art and the perennial favorite — the Brooklyn Heights dog show.

The second-annual dog show, hosted by the Brooklyn Heights Association, starts at 1 p.m. Among other categories, neighborhood dogs may be entered to win “Best Hairdo,” “Best Smile,” and of course, the coveted “Best in Show” award. Details are at

Between sets by DJ Spaz, enjoy opera, musical theater and Zarzuel performances by The Martha Cardona Theater and ballet performances by Brooklyn Ballet.

Those looking for something active will enjoy a free, outdoor yoga and Zumba class. For a more cerebral challenge, flex your chess skills at one of the many chess tables, courtesy of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.

For kids, there are a myriad of activities, including a scavenger hunt and prizes, bicycle decorating, hula hoops and chalk drawing.

For kids and adults, alike, the Brooklyn Historical Society is hosting a free walking tour and Montague Street restaurants will be handing out free samples. Finally, a public vote is being held to determine the winner of the Montague Street Photo Contest.

With hundreds of tables and chairs along the street, visitors can take a break from all the fun to relax and enjoy the last days of summer.
