Here are a couple of my other favorite things to do this coming weekend:
BAMboo!: Brooklyn Academy of Music, America’s oldest continuously operating performing arts center founded in 1861, celebrates its ninth annual Halloween festival. Get the requisite trick-or-treating out of the way and continue your afternoon of fun at BAM with candy giveaways, costume contests, storytelling, a haunted house maze, roaming entertainers, games, and more. This free event is from 2-5pm on October 31.
Lafayette Avenue between Ashland Place and Felix Street; 718-634-4100
Howl-o-ween: Dress your pooch up on October 31 and bring him or her to Canine Court in Van Cortlandt Park at Noon to compete in the annual costume competition and dog frolic. Registration is $10 per dog and $5 for each additional dog and benefits the dog run.
