Good Times at Packer's Pumpkin Patch, Brooklyn Heights

This weekend was just full of kid-friendly Halloween-themed activities in Brooklyn, and the weather gods smiled down on all of them. Here are a few photos from a Brooklyn Heights favorite, Packer's annual Pumpkin Patch. Every year the Pumpkin Patch takes over Joralemon Street, several floors at Packer Collegiate Institute and the back school yard.

Kids decorated apples with marshmallows, gumdrops and the ever popular cocktail umbrellas.

Joralemon Street was full of bouncy rides and carnival games. Every year we wish we could do this one.

The Packer PTA puts unbelievable effort into the Pumpkin Patch. This boy had a conversation with a friendly little ghost at one of not one but two haunted houses.

 This popular contest features two kids vying against each other to see who will be the first to pump up their balloon till it pops. Every time a balloon burst, it was incredibly loud and very satisfying.

Saturday, the Harvest Festival at Brooklyn Bridge Park was also a big hit.
