Come Out and Play
Don’t miss this annual highlight! For a fourth year, Come Out and Play After Dark will turn the streets of DUMBO into a giant arcade, with social party games, life-sized physical video games and wild new street games. We’re talking “Lost in Time,” where players use a smartphone app to role-play as crack journalists and track down all-American poet Walt Whitman, who has become unstuck in time and lost in DUMBO; “Higher than the Stars,” described as a game about night as a space in which to explore identity and what it feels like to sneak out of your house at night when you’re 13 to hang out with friends; and “Super Skinny Soccer,” a game that squeezes all the fun and excitement of soccer down to six players, six minutes and a three-foot-wide pitch.
Free and all ages. Bring your imagination!
