For a bit of seasonal fright that is more gently scary than outright terrifying, the 38th annual Prospect Park Halloween Haunted Walk and Fair returns this weekend. The free family-friendly event takes place in the park on Saturday, October 28 and intrepid explorers will be able to wander through a spooky pathway curving through Lookout Hill.
While not all of the ghoulish delights have been revealed, there will apparently be encounters with zombies, werewolves and witches — but the creepiness is all age appropriate, ideal for children ages 7 to 12. After braving the walk, young revelers can head to the Halloween Fair on the Nethermead, with festive activities and food truck treats.
The event runs from 12 to 3 p.m. and this year the Prospect Park Alliance is following the walk with the first after party. Head to City Point’s 445 Albee Square West from 2 to 5 p.m. for BKLYN Boo! The free event will have live DJs, a pumpkin patch and a costume contest.
