Description: Join Brookfield Office Properties and Arts Brookfield for an afternoon of earth-friendly Halloween activities. The annual celebration will transform the plaza into Halloween Village, complete with games, performances, a costume parade, and giant, 30-foot high characters including a scarecrow and a witch. Against the backdrop of the Hudson River, a costume swap will enable families to exchange last year's costumes for gently used and ready-to-wear ones for the next day's trick-or-treating. Kids can listen to spooky poems in the Poets House tent, join wandering puppets and marching bands, and create communal, earth-friendly art projects. The day culminates in a Ghosts and Goblins Parade throughout Battery Park City, starting at 3pm. Screamin' Green Halloween will also feature a variety of fun games where players will be rewarded with fair trade and organic treats, as well as temporary tattoos of pumpkins and ghosts, printed on recycled paper, of course. Free valet bicycle parking will be provided by Transportation Alternatives.
