"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children? If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future?" Jacqueline Kennedy

Sadly, Today's Carroll Park's Children's Halloween Celebration Has Been Cancelled

As you know, Carroll Park's Children's Halloween Celebration, was supposed to take place today.
Due to the weather, Friends of Carroll Park has had to cancel the event.
Here is the announcement from the Friends group:

"We're sad to report that this weekend's planned Halloween party has been called off due to the high wind and rain that's being forecast.

Unfortunately, even if the weather cleared by midday, we wouldn't have the time to get things properly set up (especially power and sound), and we don't have permits or volunteers to postpone by a day.

HOWEVER, we will set up outside the park house on Halloween from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., so come trick or treating for goodies including:
- Fresh fruit from Carroll Street farmer's market
vendor Fishkill Farms
- Daffodil bulbs courtesy of the
Daffodil Project at New Yorkers for Parks
- Rugrats and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
giveaways courtesy of Nickelodeon
Plus we'll have music and maybe even a couple of games!

Even though we can't host a party this year, we hope to see you during your trick-or-treating rounds next Wednesday."
