Coming up this weekend, the Henry Street Settlement is throwing a block party for the neighborhood. The event doubles as a celebration for Henry Street founder Lillian Wald, who was born May 3, 1899. It will be held at 265 Henry St. Activities include: a birthday cake baking contest, tours of Henry Street’s historic headquarters, arts & crafts for the kids, free blood pressure screenings, and more.  Interested in joining the cake baking contest?

Amateur bakers are invited to enter our Birthday Cake contest. Contestants should bring their cakes to the party between 12:30 and 1 p.m. Winners will be announced at 2 p.m. Cakes will be judged on appearance, creativity, taste and interpretation of the “birthday” theme. Prizes will be awarded.

Did we mention that The Lo-Down will be helping to pick the winners?
