The annual Egg Rolls and Egg Creams Festival provides a rare opportunity to celebrate the joint heritage of the Lower East Side and Chinatown with food. And this year, they've taken the celebration a step further by honoring the Puerto Rican community in the neighborhood. The day-long, free festival highlights the traditions of the neighborhood via Chinese opera and acrobats, klezmer performances, salsa and plena music, Puerto Rican mask making, Hebrew and Chinese scribal art, and, of course, the festival's namesake: kosher egg rolls, egg creams and crispy empanadas.
