Just a short walk away from our neighborhood lies The Yard, an outdoor event space on the banks of the Gowanus Canal. This Saturday, they are having their annual harvest festival, which I highly recommend. We went to this event last year and it was full of fun for family members of all ages. Here's the info from their website:
Brooklyn! Fall! Brews! Bounty! Yes, its that time of year again. The Yard is once again hosting a fall-themed celebration of Gowanus proportions.
Last year was an incredible success – over 1,000 people joined us at the banks of the canal to enjoy farm fresh food, live music, local vendors, pumpkin carving contests, pony rides, delicious brews and other triumphs of sustainable urban living.
This year, proceeds from the Gowanus Harvest Festival will be donated to Just Food.
So join us and enjoy the wonders of Autumn on Brooklyn’s most …charismatic… waterfront.
