2014 Halloween Kids Party and ParadeHalloween is just around the corner and we’d like to invite all ghosts, vampires, witches, goblins and other characters to the annual Halloween Kids Party & Parade this October 31st. We’ve once again teamed up with the DUMBO BID and Two Kids & Dogs to bring a full-filled afternoon to the children of DUMBO.  We’ll gather at 4pm at Brooklyn Roasting Company’s 25 Jay Street cafe for storytelling, candy, apple cider and a costume contest to win a $50 gift certificate to Two Kids & A Dog.  Then, we’ll parade to the DUMBO archway where Halloween crafts and fun await.  We hope you to see you there.
