Carroll Park Kids' Halloween Costume Parade Scheduled For October 30th

Mark your calendars! The yearly Carroll Park Halloween Kids' Custome Parade will take place on Sunday, October 30 at 11:30 AM.  Organized by Friends of Carroll Park, the group of wonderful volunteers who take such great care of our neighborhood park, this is an event not to be missed even if you don't have kids.  Seeing the little ones in their costumes is just too wonderful.

From the Friends of Carroll Park:
It's time once again for one of our biggest treats of the year: the annual kids' Halloween parade! Gather up your little ghouls, get gussied up, and show off your costumes on the neighborhood's streets.
We'll be gathering at 11:30, then kicking off the parade at noon. Once you're back at the park, enjoy mingling with neighbors and elected officials, with snacks courtesy of Friends of Carroll Park!

We're also looking for volunteers to take on the following roles:
Parade leaders (1-3 people) - to head up the parade and help the NYPD officers keep everyone going in the right direction
Banner carriers (2-4 people) - to get prime photo op space at the front of the lineup holding the canvas banner seen above
If you're interested in taking on these fun duties this year, please email us at and let us know!

In addition, the Friends are looking for some help planting daffodil bulbs this fall, so that our park will be even more beautiful in the coming spring.
If you have some time and would like to get involved, here is the information:
Volunteers needed for our daffodil planting "Bulbapalooza" on Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
We're looking for some community-minded Narcissus-ists to help plant more than 500 daffodil bulbs we've received from the wonderful folks at New Yorkers for Parks as part of their annual Daffodil Project!

No skills required except the ability to hold a trowel, so come help seed some of the park's planted areas for a beautiful display in the spring!

They organize some wonderful neighborhood events throughout the year.
