Brooklyn- State Senator Marty Golden today announced plans for the 16th Annual Halloween Walk & Fairytale Forest scheduled for Monday, October 31, 2011 from 3:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Owl’s Head Park, located at 67th Street and Colonial Road.

The annual event will feature the Haunted Walk, the Fairytale Forest, a pumpkin patch, sand art, a costume contest and much more. The event will also feature rides for the children, pony rides, face painting, sand art, a Trackless Train Ride and “Dracula’s Food Court”. New this year will be a very special visit from “The Batmobile”.

Senator Marty Golden stated, “The Haunted Halloween Walk and Fairytale Forest has become a fun-filled event in our community that is a safe alternative to Trick-or-Treating. This is one of my favorite events of the year, which has become for so many, a neighborhood tradition and special day full of fun, ghosts, goblins, tricks and treats. I am proud to be hosting the Halloween Walk again this year, for our children and families, and am looking forward to seeing the “Batmobile”.

This year there will be a limited opportunity to purchase V.I.P. passes for a $5.00 donation prior to the event which will entitle 1 adult and up to 5 children to enter the Halloween Walk through the V.I.P. entrances. A suggested donation of $1 is recommended at the gate to the Haunted Walk & Fairytale Forest.
