Cranberry Street Fair returns to Brooklyn Heights for 45th year
Brooklyn Heights will celebrate the return of autumn with the 45th annual Cranberry Street Fair this Saturday, Oct. 1 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
On the shady, acorn-strewn block of Cranberry between Hicks and Willow streets, Heights residents will dance in the street and enjoy a day of homegrown activities and entertainment, including belly dancing, browsing books and treasures, guessing the number of cranberries, climbing on the fire engine, parading their pets and having their fortunes told. Residents will also vie for gustatory glory in the bake-off, where every treat has to contain cranberries. (Sign up for the bake-off online at www.cranberrystreetassn.org/)
This year’s fair includes live jazz with Eric Loffswold & Bruce Edwards, Mimi Fontana’s Manhattan Tribal Belly Dancers (for the seventh year), fortune tellers, a roving photographer, silent auction and burgers and hotdogs. Coffee and tea are provided courtesy of Jim Monte and Cranberry’s.
The pet parade takes place at 12:30 p.m. (every pet gets a prize, courtesy of Rocco & Jezebal for Pets), and the raffle takes place at 3 p.m.
