Cranberry Street Fair a Tradition In Brooklyn Heights

Photos by MK Metz
For the 35th year, Brooklyn Heights residents celebrated the coming of autumn weather at the Cranberry Street Fair. The Atlantic Antic it's not -- the Cranberry Street Fair is called by some the "sweetest little street fair in Brooklyn."

Year after year the same families and new neighbors play, volunteer and visit the fair, organized by (96-year-old) Richanda Rhoden and the Cranberry Street Association.

Entertainment on Saturday was provided by jazz performer Eric Loffswold and The Manhattan Tribal Belly Dancers, shown here. Other attractions included a guess the number of cranberries contest, belly-dancing lessons, a fire engine visit, guess the weight of the pumpkin, a book sale and a "treasures" sale, the fabulous pet parade and a fortune teller.

Hope you can make the fair next year!
