A wide awake toddler at 4 a.m. combined with the dreary, rainy weather outside, had us falling asleep on the train into Grand Central this morning. Let’s hope the weather clears (and we get some rest) for what’s shaping up to be a busy weekend About Town, with lots of Halloween events for kids and adults alike.
Tomorrow is the annual Bronxville Halloween Parade, which we always miss because we’re in the city at 4pm, the start time. It’s supposed to be quite a show, though, so check it out if you can. It starts at the Pondfield Road entrance to .
On Saturday, holds its Harvest Moon Festival from 10am to 2pm, with rides and activities, including one of those bouncy castles that our kids are addicted to. There will be plenty of food on hand, as well as raffles and prizes. Tickets are $30 at the door.
Come Sunday, those so-ugly-they’re-cute pugs will take over downtown Bronxville, with the annual Halloween parade organized by Cam and Kate Fairchild of The Bronxville Pug Walk. About two dozen pugs have already RSVP’ed for the event, so it’s shaping up to be a good one. The parade starts at 10:30am at Starbucks on Park Place. We’ll be there with our pug Romeo.
Also on Sunday, our favorite event – the Children’s Halloween Festival, sponsored by the , takes place over at Leonard Morange Square (the New York bound side of the train station). The fun starts at noon and runs until 4pm, and a lot of the businesses on that side of town participate – will be doing kids’ hair and makeup, and we’re sure will be offering some type of treats.
Then, of course, comes the main event on Monday – trick or treating. We usually hit Ellison and Millard Avenues over in Yonksville – the houses are done up nicely and residents really make a fun neighborhood event out of the evening.
Finally, we leave you with a shot of this year’s jack-o-lanterns. The one on the right weighed in at 35 pounds, easily our personal record.
Have a fun and safe weekend everyone, we’ll see you About Town…
