View Photo Gallery Here! Thanks to the efforts of many volunteers of BFSNA and the Friends of Blackstone and Franklin Squares, we pulled off an epic Halloween Festival on 10/29 in Blackstone Square. Over 500 neighbors attended the shindig including children, teens, adults, grandparents, and about 100 dogs! The costumes on the children, grown ups and dogs created a sea of smiles all over the square.
