“After a fantastic summer of programming the park, we are thrilled to end the season with this family-friendly festival,” said Nancy Webster, Executive Director of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy. “We’re happy to offer local families the opportunity to enjoy some music, decorate a pumpkin, and spend time on the beautiful Pier 6. Thank you to our event sponsors and partners for supporting the event.”
