7. PUMPKIN DAY 2011 Sat 10/8, 11-1 PM, McCarren Park, Brooklyn We had to postpone Pumpkin Day by a week to Saturday 10/8 for all the weather pundits were calling for rain! boo hoo! But our 5th annual Pumpkin Day in McCarren Park turned out great! Lots of kids and their families came out to pick & decorate their own pumpkin. We had arts/crafts, face painting & tattoos; an amazing teepee from Boy Scout Troop 469; and rollicking live music by our local Newtown Creek Players, headed up by Fred Rubino, Principal of MS 318! And thank you to all our volunteers, including students from MS 126 and Brooklyn Prep!
