AllCar Rent A Car and their sister company, Carpingo, want you to put family first this summer, encouraging customers, employees and local residents to take advantage of free family activities at Lakeside in Prospect Park. An official sponsor of the park’s Hip Tot “Family Days” series, AllCar and Carpingo were pleased to participate in the kid-friendly event on August 10th.
“We knew that finding fun, affordable things to do with your family in Brooklyn was sometimes a challenge,” explained AllCar President, Gil Cygler. “Sponsoring the Hip Tot event series in Prospect Park allowed us to not only give back to the community, but also helped us bring better family entertainment to the area.”
The Hip Tot “Family Days” program is geared towards children up to 8 years old and their parents. Free, engaging activities and entertainment include live musical performances, craft activities, and prize giveaways. So far, AllCar and Carpingo have sponsored two of the three scheduled events. The third and final event was held on August 10, and included live performances from Grammy Winner Father Goose, Mr. Marc the MC and DJ Beyonder. Families also enjoyed story time with Melanie Hope Greenberg, author and illustrator of Mermaids on Parade.
Brooklyn’s newest activity destination, Lakeside at Prospect Park supports a wide range of family-friendly activities, including ice skating, roller skating, biking boating and water play. Venues are located at 171 East Drive in Brooklyn.
“Kids and kids-at-heart will enjoy the Hip Tot events at Lakeside. We look forward to seeing even more familiar faces at the next events.”
