Mack Wilds . The free concert took place at Flushing Meadows Corona Park with the help of Katzs team and the non-profit City Parks Foundation. This was the first SummerStage concert to take place in Queens over the next few weeks, but it was the 31 st season of the concert overall. Katz partnered with New York City Parks, City Parks Foundation and Delta Air Lines to host the Only In Queens summer festival. This is a great day for the borough, were having this great festival, which is the third year in a row. We usually get about 100,000 people here to join us, said Katz. We started off with a scavenger hunt and there were over 100 teams of two to six people that applied to actually play in the scavenger hunt. We also had a great day filled with old cars and bouncy rides, my two children loved the day and then we end up tonight with a great concert for SummerStage. There are some great co-sponsors like Delta, like Resort World and we also have bands from Queens such as Kid N Play, Mac Wilds from The Wire and Ginuwine and I think its just a great way for folks to spend time in the borough of Queens, were borough families and we need to have these types of events so that people have a place to go and we can continue to put Queens on the map. Its really exciting, we do free concerts all over the city, this is one of only two locations in Queens that we have concerts, so its a big day for us because we have three bands on one stage, we also do concerts in Queensbridge, said Erika Elliot , artistic director of the City Parks Foundation. Weve been planning this for months and months, so its always really amazing to be here on the day of and see all of the people here. The reason that were here is because of Borough President Melinda Katz because she put this whole day together and as the Parks Department is their partner, were a partner of the Parks Department, it was like a natural relationship for us to be involved since we produce concerts all over. Its been a great process. Elliot continued, ex
