The day-long celebration will include an ice cream social hosted by the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, music performances by the bands Ramblin’ Dan and Atlas Genius as well as a variety of family-friendly activities including sand-art, corn hole and temporary tattoos.

The interactive spire-color-changing experience will take place from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. and will be accompanied by a DJ set by Questlove.
