This weekend...

Looking for something to do this weekend? Want to stay in Bronx? Then visit BoogieDowner for a list of local goings on.

The big news, unless you hate parks, is that It's My Park! Day is being held this Saturday. In the west Bronx, there's events at University Woods, Williamsbridge Oval, Mount Hope Playground, and more. See here for a complete list.

At the University Woods event, volunteers will be asked to carve pumpkins and make scare crows in preparation for the park's Halloween event - "Ghost Stories at The Woods." Conditions inside the park, once named the city's worst three years running, have improved markedly in recent times. There's an active "Friends of The Woods" group, and earlier this year the park received $500,000 for improvements. Next Wednesday, at a scoping meeting, local residents can have their say on where the money should go.
