Mark your calendars! For the third year running, SPIKE LEE will hold his annual BROOKLYN LOVES MICHAEL JACKSON birthday party celebration in Prospect Park, Brooklyn on Saturday, August 27th.
The first year Spike did this, 20,000 MJ fans turned out. Last year, there were a whopping FIFTY THOUSAND (!!!) people in attendance, which is really just kind of insane and also completely awesome and amazing. Let me tell you, I’ve been to a lot of gatherings, concerts, parties and open park events in my life, but nothing compares to the BK♡MJ bash! It’s FREE, it’s FUN, it’s HUGE, and it’s all about L.O.V.E. + MUSIC and remembering how much of both of those things Michael delivered in spades. There’s something very special about being in a group that huge and feeling nothing but happiness and camaraderie for six hours straight!
Here are some of my photos from last year’s event. I’ll be there again this this year for sure! As far as I’m concerned, this is the FUN event of the year in New York City. (New Years Eve what? Saint Patrick’s Day Parade who?) My calendar has been booked since the moment Spike announced the date, and I’m already itching with excitement and ready to claim my spot up in the front row. DJ Spinna is as good it gets when it comes to spinning MJ, and I can’t wait to find out what special guests will be joining in on the party.
MA MA SE MA MA SA MA MA COO SA! Hope to see you there. ♡
