Stuff to Do Halloween Weekend

BHB photo by C. ScalesWe’ve already told you about the Howl-O-Ween Doggie Parade (Saturday, 1-3 p.m. on the Promenade; gather at the Remsen Street entrance at 1:00) and the zombie walk over the Brooklyn Bridge to City Hall to protest library funding cuts (assemble at the west end–nearest the Brooklyn Bridge–of Cadman Plaza Park at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday). There’s also the annual kids’ Halloween parade, sponsored by Brooklyn Heights Playgrounds. Bring your brood, in costume, to Pierrepont Playground, at Pierrepont Street and Columbia Heights, by 10:00 a.m. Saturday (rain date is same time Sunday; check the linked website for updates).

    Any chance for more party postings? With all due respect, most of the stuff posted caters to an older crowd, would love something for the few “younger” residents of the neighborhood, thanks.

  • Claude Scales

    Penguin: trick-or-treating is always on the 31st, which this year is Sunday.

    What time do things get started on Garden Place?

  • Claude Scales

    da51: trick-or-treating usually starts when it gets dark, around six-ish.

  • Miss Lucy
