Last Minute Weekend Suggestions: Brooklyn Heights and Vicinity

This Saturday, September 14, promises to be a good deal cooler (high 71), and such a change in weather promises some breezes, so it should be a good day for the Kite Festival, to be held from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at Pier 1, Brooklyn Bridge Park.

For those interested in more down to earth activity, the Poplar Street Community Garden, entrance on Poplar between Hicks and Henry streets, wants volunteers “to make changes to some of our shrub and perennial plantings and begin readying for winter.” Tools will be supplied, and Lead Gardener Cindy Goulder will be there to provide guidance. Light refreshments will be provided. Join the crew Saturday or (for those celebrating Yom Kippur, and others) Sunday from noon to 3:00 p.m. both days.

The Heights Players continue their season premiere presentation of Horton Foote’s Dividing the Estate. Performances are at the palyhouse, 26 Willow Place, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 and Sunday afternoon at 2:00, The show will continue through the following weekend. More details here.

Bargemusic is resting for the remainder of the High Holy Days, but on Sunday afternoon at 4:00 will present a “There and Then” concert, “Hispania, the Multifaceted Jewel Set in Golden Ages,” featuring music performed by the ALBA Consort.

The Brooklyn Heights Cinema will be showing The Spectacular Now and In A World. Showtimes are here.

Don’t forget the Girl Scouts’ Emergency Prparedness Fair this Saturday from 1;00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Zion Lutheran Church, 125 Henry Street.

Looking ahead, the Brooklyn Book Festival’s Bookend Events begin on Monday, September 16.
