The Queens Historical Society will host a candidates forum for the Queens borough president race on Aug. 26.
The forum will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Flushing Town Hall, located at 137-35 Northern Blvd.
Candidates expected to attend include Councilman Peter Vallone Jr., D-Astoria, former state Assemblywoman Melinda Katz, Everly Brown and Tony Arcabascio.
State Sen. Tony Avella, D-Bayside, announced Wednesday that he was dropping out of the race.
The theme of the forum will be neighborhood preservation.
