The mysterious Zozo came out from hiding to make his first appearance this Saturday at Celebrate Brooklyn’s Family Day in Prospect Park. He reminded kids and families that the green way is also the fun and healthy way to get around the city. Zozo was particularly impressed with Celebrate Brooklyn’s Bike Zone, and loves that you can get to the concert "by feet, by train, by bike, by bus"!

  • I got my photo with the Zozo! I couldn”t be any happier.
