Vernon Boulevard will again be shut down for the LIC Springs! street fair on Saturday, May 9.

The art scene heats up in Long Island City with two big events this week.

On Saturday, the second annual LIC Springs! will shut down Vernon Boulevard for a street fair, including live music, art making and family activities.

Don’t miss the spaghetti and gelato eating contest that organizers hope will one day rival Coney Island’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.

Then on Wednesday, the fifth annual LIC Arts Open kicks off with five days of open art studios and exhibits at locations all over the neighborhood.

Check out works at the Falchi Building, The Factory LIC, Alobar, Manducatis Rustica and more.

LIC Springs! runs May 9, from noon to 5 p.m.

LIC Arts Open begins May 13 and runs through May 17.

Both events are free.
