Harvest Hootenanny
Sunday, October 25th, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Harvest Hootenanny, the 9th annual celebration of fall at Greenwood Playground, will welcome the season with music, dance, arts and crafts, and the 3rd Annual Halloween Parade, with prizes in several costume categories.

Friends of Greenwood Playground (FOGP) have arranged a solid block of entertainment, including the Cynthia King Dancers, musicians John Montagna and Brooklyn Bass Daddy, Debbie Deane, and Jennifer Milich, and storyteller Robin Bady. The entertainment schedule will be announced soon.

In addition, the festival will offer arts and crafts with Barking Cat Studio, face painting, pumpkin painting, glitter tattoos, a bake sale, and a raffle.

A donation of $5 per family is suggested.

Bring, if you can, canned food and non-perishable items to donate to the Food Bank for New York City. Go to their website to see what they need.

 Friends of Greenwood Playground is "a community group dedicated to bringing great programs for kids and families to our fantastic local playground. Our entire operation is volunteer-run." 

Can you volunteer to help for an hour or two on the day of The Hoot? FOGP needs help with set-up, clean-up, and everything in between. Send them an e-mail at greenwoodplayground @ to let them know what times you will be available.

Greenwood Playground is on E. 5th Street, between Fort Hamilton Parkway and Greenwood Avenue, near the F and G Fort Hamilton Parkway station.
