Halloween Oct. 26

Dear Neighbors,

Halloween is right around the corner, and Friends of Joe DiMaggio Playground is planning its 7th Annual Halloween Extravaganza.

Sunday, October 26th

3:00 – 5:00 pm

Joe DiMaggio Playground, blacktop area

Every year this (FREE!) event has grown, and it is now anticipated as “the neighborhood event” of the season – attracting scores of local families, as well as other families from all over the City.  This year we plan to have Trick or Trunk for all the kids (hooray for safe trick or treating) and back by popular demand – a real circus!  And for the first time, a HAUNTED HOUSE inside the Clubhouse!

As you know the playground will undergo a major renovation beginning later this year so this is a bit of a “Last Hurrah” for the blacktop as we know it!  We hope you can join us – and please spread the word!

If you would like to support the event, please click here to donate.  All amounts, no matter how big or small, will be so helpful in bringing this amazing event to all of our neighborhood!


Sign up for Trick or Trunk!

It’s just about that time of year when the Joe D blacktop is home to our annual Halloween Extravaganza on Sunday, October 26th.
For those of you who may not be familiar, Trick or Trunk is one of the main events at the Extravaganza.  Neighbors, families, and friends decorate their cars (as a house would) and park them on the blacktop as we can have a fun and safe place for our kids to experience some urban trick or treating — get it  Trick or Trunk-ing?

We are hoping to have LOTS of cars this year – a sort of send off for the playground before its re-do!

BYOC (candy)!

Sign up today!
Please RSVP to friends@dimaggioplayground.org by October 24th if you would like to participate!
Boo!  Hope to see you all at the party!
