Happy Halloween! Lots going on today, on Fifth!
Halloween Parade: At 6:30 pm, meet up at 14th Street and Fifth Avenue for this year's literary-themed procession - To Boo or Not to Boo. The route will take Park Slope's scariest ghouls and goblins north along 7th Avenue, left down 3rd Street and end at The Old Stone House & Washington Park. The Park Slope Fifth Avenue BID is a proud sponsor!
Trick or Treats: Of course, Fifth Avenue’s stores, bars and restaurants are popular and SAFE places for children to Trick-or-Treat. Don’t forget to stop by the future home of The Oyster Bar (Fifth Avenue between Garfield and Carroll) to get some treats and meet the owners. Oh, and we just learned that Miss Brooklyn will be on hand to help give the treats out!
