Waking up this morning to the cooler fall temperatures we’re reminded that our 17th Annual Harvest in the Square is right around the corner! Next week, foodies will descend on Union Square Park for an unforgettable night of food and fun under the fall canopy of the park. The event benefits the care, maintenance, and investments made in Union Square Park by the Union Square Partnership. Harvest in the Square funds the plantings of thousands of new shrubs, perennials, annuals, and bulbs. It also supports the creation and maintenance of the park’s popular seating areas by funding new bistro tables, chairs and umbrellas for parkgoers to enjoy. Your Harvest ticket purchase also expands the free summer programming, such as our popular fitness, dance, and children’s programs we provided this past summer. Finally, donations support additional staff that maintain and enhance our investments, such as a seasonal gardener who cares for the park’s greenery and a summer playground associate that helps activate Evelyn’s playground for thousands of children during the warmer months. Join us next week for a fantastic night of delicious food from some of the neighborhoods most renown restaurants and help support Union Square Park. Purchase tickets for Harvest in the Square.
