If Halloween leaves you wondering whether all that trick-or-treating merely guarantees your child a lifetime of cavities, here's a chance to make the holiday a little more fun and nutritious.
Spring Garden resident Noam Kugelmass has created a character, Mr. Halloweenster, who teaches kids that there is more to Halloween than Snickers Bars and Jolly Joes. Mr. Halloweenster - video here, web site here - rescues the kids from an evil candy maker and helps them create fun costumes.
He's an animated character, but like Mickey Mouse and others before him, Mr. Halloweenster appears in person. He'll take part in a Halloween event at Smith Playground Saturday Oct. 27. More information on that here.
A reminder about this Wednesday's schools fair:
WHAT: Center City Residents Association (CCRA), Logan Square Neighborhood Association (LSNA) and South of South Neighborhood Association (SOSNA) are pleased
to announce the first annual CCRA, LSNA & SOSNA School Fair
A lot of parents will be able to relate to Karen Lewis. She wanted to find a good school for her son, Cooper Harbol. She tried public, was unhappy and transferred her son to Greene Street Friends this year.
Read/listen to her story, told by Benjamin Herold on WHYY, here.
Trying to figure out possible school options for your child? Check out the FREE School Fair from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 17 at the Ethical Society, 1906 Rittenhouse Square.
