Halloween entertainers needed for Spanish Harlem kids

After blog posting about Harlem Meer’s Halloween Parade and Pumpkin Sail, I received a special request. There are a select group of Harlemites in Spanish Harlem that are having a small Halloween street party from 3 PM to 7 PM on October 31 for the kids (and adults) on their particular block. They are asking for assistance in helping entertain Harlem kids for Halloween. If HarlemCondoLife readers know of a magician, palm reader, balloon folder, face painter, etc., send a message to djjaffe@gmail.com or call 917-912-4466 with recommendations.

Ideally, what these locals are looking for is to have entertainer(s) stop by and bring some smiles to cute Harlem faces on their block in Harlem. So if HCL readers can help, please write to the email or call the number listed above. What better way to celebrate Halloween than by paying it forward with kindness and generosity. Have a great weeek!

The immaculate Fall weather was the perfect backdrop for the 2010 Halloween Parade and Pumpkin Sail located at Harlem Meer. Plus all the costumes present made the day that much brighter. I saw little dinosaurs, tigers, lions, pirates and ninjas, along with several lady bugs, a few princesses, butterflies and the occasional witch. The event was so much fun. I could not resist taking photo after photo…

We attended last year and it was so much fun. We adored seeing all the little ones dressed up in their favorite Halloween costumes.
