Editor's Pick: 

On Saturday, October 31, 2009 from 12 noon – 3:00 pm, the Fort Greene Park Conservancy presents the 10th Annual Halloween Festival in Brooklyn's historic Fort Greene Park. Hundreds of children will be treated to hay rides, games, sack races, face painting, stilt-walkers, entertainers and free pumpkins to decorate – and it’s all FREE. Plus there will be a costume parade and spooky cemetery with such luminaries in residence as “Will B. Back” and “R U Next”.

The festival kicks off at 12 noon with a wild costume contest for dogs and their owners: “The Great PUPkin,” sponsored by Fort Greene PUPS, the local dog-owners organization. (Click here for more about the popular dog costume contest.)
