Independence Day Celebration, 1 pm–4 pm
Lefferts Historic House, $3 suggested donation
Join Prospect Park Alliance in celebrating two Independence Days, America’s independence from England in 1776 and the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans in New York in 1827. Look extra patriotic as you make yourself a plumed hat to wear while signing your own "John Hancock" on a reproduction of the Declaration of Independence.
