Coming Up This Spring In Carroll Park: Bark Avenue Adopt-A-Thon And The Popular Carroll Park Fair

Spring has arrived in Carroll Park as hundreds of daffodils are currently in full bloom in one of Brooklyn's oldest parks. If you have not yet walked by, you should. Just in time for warmer and sunnier days, two very popular events have been scheduled in our neighborhood's green oasis.

The first is the Bark Avenue Adopt-A-Thon on Sunday, April 29th from 1 pm to 5 pm. (Rainday is May 6th). If you have been thinking about adopting a four-legged friend, this is your opportunity to meet some great dogs and cats looking for a home. And even if you can't provide a home for a pet, please come out and support the wonderful rescue groups that will be taking part in this event.

From the organizers:

Come join us for a blast from the past for this year’s 70’s ‘Disco Dog’ theme! Brooklyn’s own ‘Brian Travolta’ is sure sure to show us some moves this dog day afternoon! We have lots of fun activities this year including a puppet show by the Mayor’s Alliance For NYC’s Animals, An agility course by Dogboy and a pup photo booth by Mobile Mutts to name a few!

Rescue groups that will be participating:

The second event this spring is Friends Of Carroll Park's annual Carroll Park Fair on Saturday, May 19th.
This is the non-for-profit group's main fundraiser. It enables FoCP's volunteers to do all their great work in the Park -- movie nights, karaoke, the Halloween party, all the plantings, and more.

Come on out, support your park and have a great time doing it! Meet your neighbors, find bargains, empty your wallet. There will be live music, face painting and more.

If you want to reserve a space for the fair where you can clear out your closet, promote your business or sell your product (sorry, no food or drink sales), contact Friends of Carroll Park at 917 574 0745 for more information. 10' x 10' spaces are only $35. But don't wait. The spaces fill up super fast.
