Spooky Storytime and Art in the Park: Saturday, October 29th

spooky-storytime-2016Celebrate the spookiest season with the Downtown Providence Parks Conservancy and Kidoinfo on Saturday, October 29th from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM! Be brave, and spend the morning in Burnside Park listening to guest authors, illustrators, and artists at Spooky Storytime. Hear Alison Paul (The Crow: A Not-So-Scary Story), Jen Corace (Gibbous Mooney Wants to Bite You!), and Ricky Katowicz read from their own books and some of their favorites: Vegetables in Underwear by Jared Chapman, Creepy Carrots! By Aaron Reynolds & Peter Brown, Bone Soup by Cambria Evans and Pumpkin Town by Katy McKy and Pablo Bernasconi.

Come dressed in a Halloween costume, or borrow capes, masks, and art supplies to play with. Following this year’s theme of Veggie Villains, create your very own scary vegetable characters with Ricky Katowicz and interact with Alison Paul’s larger-than-life characters at Haunted Art in the Park. Learn about anatomy with Ms. Bones, and guess the guts at the Spooky Touch + Feel Table. Explore the kid-sized hay bale maze, and trick-or-treat your way through fun activity tables. Taste apples from local farmers and bring home a mini pumpkin to decorate. The fun festivities end with a costume party parade and spook-tacular dance party led by BIG NAZO!
