Great Brooklyn Activities Coming Up Soon

It’s almost Valentine’s Day-are you ready? If not here’s an idea which sounds as fun as it is useful. This Saturday, February 9 head on over to the LARK Café and enjoy some good music while you create your own personal love notes to spread around on that special day dedicated to love. Be there by 12pm for something a bit different.

Deborah Buck, Brooklyn Philharmonic Concertmaster, will present the history of classical music in Brooklyn at the Dweck Center of the Central Library. The talk will begin at 7pm on Wednesday evening February 6th. Children under the age of 6 years will not be allowed to attend.

Its almost Purim, the holiday celebrated by the Jewish people with costumes, masks, feasting and drinking. Come and see what all the excitement is about at the Kings Bay Y at Windsor Terrace on Sunday, February 24th at their annual Purim Masquerade.  The day is designed for families with costume contests, yummy hamentashen, and the packaging of about 2,000 food baskets for fellow New Yorkers in need. Pack it Up for Purim begins at 10:30am and should end at about 12:30pm, enough time to return home and enjoy a traditional family Purim meal.

Come visit the Audubon Nature Center in Prospect Park and find out the answers to your most pressing nature questions like: Where do squirrels get their food in the winter? How do birds keep themselves warm in the winter? And lots more. Prospect Park on February 18 and 19.
