This is another big weekend for furry friends. You can adopt a kitty at the BBAWC event in front of Pet’s Emporium, 105 Montague (between Hicks and Henry) between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Then you can take it, or your already long-standing pet, to St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, Montague and Clinton, for a blessing of the animals at 2:00 p.m. Sunday. If it’s flora, not fauna, you seek, there’s the Brooklyn Bridge Park fall tree giveaway on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to noon on Pier 6, near the foot of Atlantic Avenue.
Don’t forget the Cranberry Street Fair, Saturday from 11:00 a.m to 3:00 p.m. on Cranberry between Hicks and Willow, featuring, in keeping with the weekend’s theme and among many other things, a pet parade, in which all of the participants, like the children of Lake Wobegon, will be considered above average.
Bargemusic, at the Fulton Ferry Pier, foot of Old Fulton Street, has its usual full program of weekend concerts, including the free “Music in Motion” concert at 3:00 p.m. Saturday. More details are here. Brooklyn Heights Cinema, 70 Henry Street (corner of Orange), is showing Arbitrage and The Master. Showtimes are here.
If you’re up for a walk, on Saturday afternoon the Brooklyn Historical Society, 128 Pierrepont Street (corner of Clinton), in conjunction with Big Onion, is once again presenting a walking tour of historic Brooklyn Heights. The tour begins at 1:00 p.m.; meet at the Borough Hall steps facing Cadman Plaza, and ends at BHS, where you get a tour of the historic building and free museum admission. The tour costs $18 for adults, $15 for students, seniors, and BHS members. More details here.
