Ghouls and Gourds at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

The BBG's Ghouls and Gourds was canceled last year due to a freak October snowstorm, but, this year, thankfully, families got to enjoy the festival on Saturday, October 27—only a few days before Hurricane Sandy hit the city. At the Brooklyn garden, little ones flaunted their eye-catching outfits alongside gigantic puppets, Brazilian percussionists and stiltwalkers in a daytime parade and festival. Kids also watched performance by the Richmond Indigenous Gourd Orchestra and listened to local authors and illustrators read from their works in the Children's Book Barn.
