For those too excited to wait until October 31st or who find celebrating difficult on a school night, Brooklyn Children’s Museum is hosting an early Halloween on Saturday, October 28.
Costumes are encouraged, so tie on a cape or tape on a tail and head on over to the borough’s cutest celebration! And yes, there will be candy, so bring a bag or a bucket and enjoy filling up.
Attendees will be able to:
- Shout “BOO!” and boogie down with 10-year-old DJ Annie Red at BCM’s rooftop costume dance party.
- Visit the Mad Scientist Animal Menagerie, presented by BCM’s own animal maintainers.
- Learn about creepy crawlies at the Insect Meet-and-Greet with entomologist Dr. Aaron Rodrigues.
- Enjoy a witchy, puppetry performance by The Smack-Dab in the Middle of the Day Show.
- Catch a screening of Muppets Haunted Mansion.
- Trick-or-treat around the Museum’s exhibits.
“We have fun all year round at BCM, but there’s always a special magic during Halloween,” says Atiba Edwards, Acting President and CEO of Brooklyn Children’s Museum. “It’s a joy to serve as a hub where families across Brooklyn can come to trick-or-treat and enjoy Halloween festivities. We invite you to join us this year, in all your costumed glory!”
