P.S. 8 Paddlewheeler: Brooklyn Heights' Multi-Colored Hair Kids, Explained

Have you seen a large number of kids walking around Brooklyn Heights today with multi-colored hair?

The reason is the P.S. 8 2013 Paddlewheeler Festival, which took place Saturday. There were a number of popular activities (like the terrarium-making table, above) but the most popular by far was the crazy hair coloring booth.

Kids with blond hair became rainbow-headed; kids with red hair got it sprayed green. There's no telling when it will wear out.

This was the 10th annual Paddlewheeler -- and the tenth anniversary of its celebrated principal Seth Phillips.

This year's festival featured rides, a bouncy castle, food court, arts & crafts and more. We always hear about a dunk-the-principal booth but we always miss it...

How fun would it be if everyone had funky colored hair not just kids?
