Plymouth Church Yankee Fair, Brooklyn Heights Tradition

The petting zoo and children's rides were rained out fairly early Saturday, but the action moved inside and the Plymouth Church Yankee Fair in Brooklyn Heights attracted big crowds eager to shop for holiday presents and enjoy kids' programming.

Besides all kinds of new and used merchandise to buy, there was an exotic creature show out on the lawn and an excellent band led by John Carlin inside, which attracted a huge crowd of kids. Talking Hands Theater puppet ensemble and Liam the Magician also performed.

The used book and CD fair was a hit. By the end of the event, people were carrying out bagfuls of loot.

On Cranberry Street, this is one of those neighborhood fairs that locals go to year after year, like the Brooklyn Friends Winter Crafts Fair (coming up December 6).
