Dumbo Summer Events Listing 2007

Since Memorial Day weekend was the unofficial summer events kick-off, I thought I’d put together a list of major events in and around Dumbo in June. Not all July, August, and September events have been announced yet. Thank you to all who emailed me your events. If I missed any major neighborhood events, please email me and I’ll add it to this list and will repost another updated list again in a few weeks.
