Halloween is here, and the weekend weather is supposed to be just about perfect, so get out and enjoy it. On Franklin, kids will be parading and painting pumpkins starting at 3:30pm on Saturday, courtesy of the CHCA and LaunchPad (click the flyer above for more details). I may have misread it, but I think I also saw a poster for a Halloween Party for the big kids at Franklin Park on Saturday night (though there's nothing about it on their website). The Heart of Brooklyn orgs (Prospect Park, the Zoo, the Botanical Garden, the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Public Library, and the Children's Museum) also have a great slate of activities lined up, including the haunted walk in Prospect Park and pumpkin carving at the Garden. Finally, if you want to venture a little further afield, check out Zombiefest, a zombie-crawl, film screening, and after-party to benefit the Food Bank of New York.
