(Had to use a suitably frightening shot of our dear departed cat Gordie to get into the spirit of the season.)
While the demolition of Building 213
has decreased the neighborhood's Spooky Quotient considerably, there's still some Halloween-related activities if you're looking for more than just trick-or-treating.
Canal Park is having a free Pumpkins in the Park
shindig on Saturday, Oct. 25 from 11 am to 1 pm on the north block at 2nd and I. "The fun includes small pumpkins and decorating tools, face painting, and a performance by Mr. Skip at 12:00pm! "
* Alas, the Haunted Ship Barry at the Navy Yard is dark for a second year in a row, but on Saturday the Navy museum is holding a Haunted Gallery
. Little kids are invited from 4 pm to 7 pm, and teens and grownups from 7:30 to 10 pm. See the flyer for more information
, and be sure to give them a call to be filled in on the security requirements for getting to the museum.
* There's a Halloween Party
on Sunday, Oct. 26 from 5 to 7 pm at the Courtyard by Marriott at New Jersey and L, being put on by the Waterfront Church
, which a few months ago began offering services there on Sundays at 10 am. The party is free and will have games, pumpkin painting, candy, and more. The Facebook event page has more info
, and you can RSVP there so they don't run out of goodies.
Anything else? Post in the comments--and if I get more announcements, I'll update this.
