Ghouls and goblins (of all ages) are invited to join Children’s Museum of the Arts for a free community artmaking block party to create the float that kicks off The Village Halloween Parade. Grab your favorite costume (and mask!) and meet us at Spring Street Park in Hudson Square on Sunday, October 30 from 11 AM to 3 PM.
Don’t forget your party shoes! Dance Church®, a movement class that offers a fun and inclusive approach to dancing, will host a 40-minute movement session at 1 PM for partygoers of all ages. Instructor Laura Carella will lead the class in a series of movement cues, accompanied by a curated playlist of multi-genre music. Pre-registration is required for the Dance Church portion of the event.
