Early Friday Evening in Williamsburg: Harvest Festival at P.S. 132 The Conselyea School
With Halloween just around the corner, we walked down Conselyea Street to the corner of Manhattan Avenue for the annual P.S. 132 Harvest Festival.
Our wonderful neighborhood elementary school featured festive decor, good food, lots of activities, costumed children (and parents), and lots of fun among the boos and ghouls.
Pumpkins and ghosts were a major motif.
There was face painting, of course, for those Williamsburg kids too young to get tattoos.
We patiently waited on line to get in to the school.
A skeleton greeted us as we walked in the building. (That used to happen to us every day at P.S. 203 back in the 1950s!)
We saw spiders but not Spidey.
And we saw lots of people, young and not so young, enjoying themselves on this very chilly late October evening -- with possible snow (yikes!) tomorrow.
You could get as many $1 tickets as you wanted, good for admission, food,
various activities, and the haunted house on the third floor, which we were too scared to visit.
Although we had to leave early to have dinner with some neighbors,
we're very grateful we got to attend this evening's Harvest Festival at P.S. 132.
Thanks to everyone who must have worked really hard to make it a success.
