Celebrating its 51st year, the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Holiday Party welcomes hundreds of youth into Restoration Plaza for art making, storytelling, dance performances presented by the Youth Arts Academy, a music performance by the Noel Pointer Foundation, dance and drumming classes led by the Youth Arts Academy instructors. We continue to honor our legacy of promoting children's literacy in Central Brooklyn.
