Oktoberfest in the Plaza
Jen and Tom helped to organize and Oktoberfest and Children’s Fall Festival at Dag Hammaskjold Plaza. The weather cooperated and all of the planning payed off. The plaza was filled with children painting pumpkins…and amazed parents in wonderment about the free event.
Jen and Tom worked to get a strolling magician, a face painter they met in Central Park, a chocolate dipping experience from “Chocolat Bla Bla Bla”, an inflatable bouncing castle, midway games along with beer and brats for the adults. German music filled the air…powered by Tom’s tiny MP3 player and live music from Ken, the accordian player in lederhosen.
The only scary part was when Tom lost his wedding ring while spreading out the hay for the pumpkin patch. After a proveribial search, the ring was found and all was good with the world.
