Ghouls, goblins, creepy-crawlies and superheroes came out to play at Halloween parades and parties across Brooklyn this week. Kids strutted their costumes from Brooklyn Heights to Bay Ridge; Puppetry Arts hosted its annual, wildly popular Haunted Halloween Carnival in Park Slope; and even doggies donned disguises at the Brooklyn Heights Howl-O-Ween Parade.
The Jah Pan Steel Drum Band led the popular Cobble Hill Halloween Parade, sponsored by the Cobble Hill Association. Afterwards, the 76th Precinct closed off several streets for trick-or-treating.
Kids twirled to a real Mariachi band, heard spooky stories, did kooky crafts and touched creepy live bugs at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum’s Monster Mash this past weekend.
Greetings from Brooklyn’s own Area 51.
Space Kitties, pumpkins, costumes, crafts and authors were just some of the goings-on at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Ghouls & Gourds Halloween celebration.
