Bryant Park Fall Festival

The Bryant Park Fall Festival hosted by Bank of America is happening again this year and they have some amazing performances lined up! The festival is free and runs from September 16 – 23, 2011. I’m really excited about this year’s festival. Last year I tried to check out a performance by the NYC Ballet but the performance was rained out. Cross your fingers for clear skies and pick a day to check a performance!
