Prospect Park Halloween Events Still On
We just got an email from Eugene Patron at the Prospect Park Alliance, who always keeps us up to date about goings on in park. He writes to say that "as of 9:30am we’re still on. Even if some activities end up get scaled back there is still events at Audubon, Lefferts and the zoo." The main issue in question is the Haunted Walk, but it is going forward. So all the information is one place, here's a recap of today events, which run from Noon-3PM:
The Haunted Walk is free and is suitable for young children accompanied by parents/guardians or older siblings. The Haunted Carnival takes place on the the Nethermead and features games, music, hay and pony rides and performances. Enter the Park at the Prospect Park Southwest and 16th Street entrance. Plus, on Saturday and Sunday: Haunted Carousel, 12-5 p.m. Chilling music, ravens, bats, and spiders make a spin on the Carousel the perfect Halloween treat. $1.50.Plus, there will be Scary Stories from the Past at 2PM and 3PM at the Lefferts Historic House as well as Skeleton Cut-Outs from 1PM-4PM.
