Bring elementary and preschool age children for BAM's annual Halloween extravaganza, a favorite of local kids. For three hours, until it's ghoulishly dark, BAM hosts a whole range of free fun and festivities including live music, roaming entertainers, stilt walkers, a DJ  and games.


Instead of trick or treating at homes or local stores, kids can collect Halloween goodies here at candy giveaways.

Make sure the children come in costume, as there's also, of course, costume contests!

It all happens outside (dress warmly) right in front of BAM's main building. And did we mention that it's free?

In 2012, the theme was medieval; in 2013 it's ancient Egypt. So, kids will see friendly BAM staff dressed up as sphinxes, snakes, and Cleopatras.

Where: In front of BAM Peter Jay Sharp Building Lafayette Ave between Ashland Pl and St. Felix St


When: Halloween, October 31, 4—7pm

Nearby, don't miss Halloween Events in Clinton Hill and Fort Greene!
