Ridgites were treated to a down-home, rootin’, tootin’ hoedown — complete with a bluegrass band, and a plethora of fresh pies — on Saturday afternoon.
It marked the first event held at Owls Head Park Overlook since it was renovated this year.
Bay Ridge bluegreass band, The New River Travelers, entertained the crowd of parents and kids, who danced — and, in some cases, sang along — on the terrace overlooking the harbor.
“Everybody had a good time,” said Victoria Hofmo, of the Bay Ridge Arts and Cultural Alliance, which helped organize the day with Councilman Vincent Gentile (D–Bay Ridge). “I’m happy that people heard about it and showed up, since it wasn’t on a main strip with people walking by.”
The day featured a potluck with apple and pumpkin pies and cookies — but the best was a homemade pumpkin pie, she said.
