A good old fashioned hootenanny, waiting for you at Prospect Park

If you’re looking for a cheap way to fill up and get a little exercise this weekend (but not too much), Prospect Park has the solution: Lakeside’s Backyard Jamboree!

This family-friendly autumnal festival will bring southern-style BBQ, pumpkin decorating, caramel apples and of course a photo booth to South Prospect Park Saturday, October 11 from 11am to 5pm. Oh and did we mention there will be country line dancing? We’re expecting more than the Cha Cha Slide.

A ticket for the festivities starts at $15, which gets you a plate of BBQ and free entry to the LeFrak roller rink. A more indulgent $29 option earns you the choice of make-your-own-candy-apple or one hot apple cider along with skate rentals and bag check service and presumably other privileges a VIP ticket should earn you. Family-packs of 4 tickets are 45% off online if you have three friends. Cha Cha real smooth to Prospect Park this weekend for all of the fall festivities.
