Hundreds of youngsters took over the plaza under the Sunnyside Arch on Saturday to participate in an arts & crafts fair.

The event was the first of three summer events hosted by Sunnyside Shines, with the remaining two taking place on August 3 and August 10.

On Saturday, 10 tables were set up for arts & crafts, face painting, games and souvenirs.  There were also two “Music for Ardvarks” classes for the toddlers in the crowd.

Several local businesses had tables.

Bing’s Hallmark, located at 45-15 Greenpoint Ave., gave away gift bags loaded with crayons, erasers and candy.

Meanwhile, 4Squared Flavors, a frozen ice cream store that will open at 45-12 Greenpoint Avenue in September, also had a table where its owners gave away pencils for the kids and key chains for their parents.

“It turned out wonderfully and the children were very happy,” said Sunnyside Shines office manager Janet Hohenstein.

The Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Jazz Concert takes place this Saturday in the same location at 46th Street, between Queens Blvd. and Greenpoint Ave.

It’s not frozen ice cream. It will be a frozen yogurt. Much healthier than ice cream.
