Happy Halloween From LATB And Mommy Poppins: All Aboard The Manhattan By Sail’s Clipper City Ship

Last weekend I had the pleasure of joining Mommy Poppins, a website dedicated to helping NY parents find fun things to do with their kids, on a Halloween-themed boat sail on board Manhattan by Sail’s Clipper City ship, a replica of a 100 year old schooner, around lower Manhattan with my better half and his nieces and nephew.

Even though we are all lifelong New Yorkers, we got to see the Statue of Liberty up close for the first time in years; the kids got some pretty sweet face paint to dress their costumes up even further (face paint courtesy of Face Painting by Shelly); we even got a show from another NY staple, Silly Billy, aka “Dr. Bloooooood:” he “chopped” off his hand and then sprayed the crowd with his “blood.” Scary! The topper was all kids modeling their costumes at the end: one was cuter than the next.

Wishing you all a very HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
