Get in the Spooky Spirit for Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner, so it’s time to get into the spooky spirit. Here are 5 things you can do, ranging from the tame to the terrifying, to get prepared for All Hallow’s Eve, when the veil between the worlds of the dead and the living is at its thinnest.

  1. Pumpkin Painting at Berry Street Garden. Come to Brooklyn’s Berry Street Garden this Saturday, October 20 from 11am-1pm for an all-ages pumpkin painting party. Pumpkins and paint will be provided by GreenThumb. 
  2. Catacombs by Candlelight Tours take place October 15-December 31 at The Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral. 
  3. Green-Wood Cemetery’s Nightfall is a 21 and over event where thousands of candles line the cemetery’s winding paths. You’ll pass musicians, performance artists, moving images, and storytellers that will make for a night you won’t forget. 
  4. Brooklyn Horror Film Festival runs until October 18, scaring people out of their wits at 6 theaters across Brooklyn.
  5. Horseman’s Hollow at Philipsburg Manor in the legendary town of Sleepy Hollow takes the tale to its darkest extremes. Be prepared to encounter the undead, the evil, and the insane.
