Reminder: "The Princess Bride" Movie Screening And Karaoke In Carroll Park This Week-End

Just a reminder that Carroll Park will host two wonderful events this week-end.  Bring the kids out tonight for the "The Princess  Bride" Movie Screening tonight.  Then come back tomorrow night for Karaoke in the park.
And don't forget the yearly Halloween parade next week-end.

Friends of Carroll Park, the all-volunteer group which maintains all of the park's gardens, has some great family-friendly events planned for this fall. From movie screening to karaoke, to the return of the beloved Halloween Parade, you will want to be there. So mark your calendar and pass the info along to your friends.
