Chilly weather was the perfect backdrop this weekend for fall activities.

Druid Hill Park was the site of the first ever Park n' Pumpkin Festival.

Baltimore City Parks and Recreation partnered with friends of Druid Hill Park to offer a Fall themed family friendly event that included music, lawn games, face-painting, a moon bounce, arts and crafts, and food, at little to no cost.

Chief of Special Events, Cortney Weinstock says it's all about having safe community events for families;

"This brings the community out in the park neighbors coming out in the park to enjoy nature have kids have fun safe healthy activities to do and just to see that here's really positive things happening in the parks."

They want the event to be an annual tradition. Parks and Recreation plans to offer more free programming throughout the year, you can check out their website for upcoming events.
