The beginning of June essentially marks the beginning of summer even though the official date has been set for the 21st. Nonetheless, the sun is out and New York City, as usual, plans to take full advantage of this. Parks are packed, colors are bright, and outdoor activities are in full swing. We are just as excited as everyone else and, as such, we have decided to take it upon ourselves to come up with a list of some of the best events scheduled for this month.
Before we proceed to explore this list, we recommend that you employ the services of our Bronx car service for all your excursions this summer for stress-free transfers from venue to venue. Our trusted chauffeurs will drive you promptly and safely to any location of your choice as you relax and enjoy the luxury and amenities of our vehicles and look forward to your next adventure.
Coney Island Mermaid Parade
The Coney Island Mermaid Parade is a free event that has been scheduled for the 16th of June. Every summer, thousands of people in costumes make their way to Coney Island’s Surf Avenue. Popular costumes for this event include pirates, sailors, cuttlefish, and, of course, mermaids. The event is meant to be a celebration of the commencement of summer and later on participants head over to the nearby Brighton Beach to mingle and soak in the sun.
Museum Mile Festival
This annual event is scheduled for the 12th of June on 5th Avenue (between 82nd and 104th Street), where traffic will be closed off for that particular day. Here, you will get to enjoy family-friendly artistic and musical entertainment. Furthermore, entrance will be absolutely free to at least nine museums in the city. The kids will especially enjoy the face painting stands and the sidewalk art, so tag them along.
Egg Rolls, Egg Creams, and Empanadas Festival
Head over to the Museum at Eldridge Street in Chinatown on the 17th of June and enjoy cultural delights from the Chinese, Jewish, and Puerto Rican communities. You will get to enjoy performances from the Chinese Peking Opera and Jewish Klezmer Bands in the outdoor stage, attend free language lessons, learn various traditional games, and attend cooking classes. There will also be numerous food stands where you can sample traditional delicacies from the different communities throughout the day.
Sunset Sail Happy Hour

Imagine you are The Queen or The King of the world and hop aboard Hornblower’s Sensation and cruise along the Hudson while enjoying the breathtaking view of the Manhattan skyline.
