Tricks and Treats In Brooklyn’s Park Slope District
Park Slope in Brooklyn, NYC, has been consistently voted one of the most desirable places to live in all of the USA. With its historic structures, quality education, wonderful dining options, and creative community, there’s a great deal to love in this northwestern neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Another reason why people love Park Slope has to do with the exciting community events that take place here. Halloween in Park Slope, for example, is full of fun events for the whole family. There’s always a special Halloween parade here with ghouls, goblins, and much more; parade-goers really get into the spirit and dress up in a wide variety of vibrant costumes. The parade always takes place on October 31st starting on 7th Avenue and 14th Street and then turns onto 3rd Street, ending at the park situated around The Old Stone House, a historic landmark that dates back to before the Revolutionary War.
There are many other festivities planned specifically for Halloween in Park Slope besides this major parade. For instance, The Old Stone House (in conjunction with local online community organizers Park Slope Parents) hosts a series of fun costume contests on the weekend closest to Halloween. People are encouraged to show off their great costume skills and come together to vote on who truly is the “fairest of them all” in Park Slope.
The Park Slope Halloween festivities are beloved by many people across NYC. A few of the organizations that help fund these events include the Park Slope Chamber of Commerce, the Park Slope 5th Avenue BID, and local businesses such as our Halloween Haunting host this year: Dizzy’s Diner on 5th Ave.
On Saturday the 29th of October, Treblemakers families took over Dizzy’s space beginning at 6:00 pm. With many costumes coordinated with the music students were playing, over 30 ghoulish performances kept families entertained throughout an early Halloween dinner. Students singing and playing music in and out of costume in celebration of Halloween showcased their progress in a festive environment surrounded by the musical family and community that is Treblemakers Music School.
