Be afraid. Be very afraid!

The Prospect Park Alliance’s Halloween Haunted Walk & Carnival will feature the Headless Horseman and his crew of ghoulish Halloween companions, such as the werewolf, Count Dracula, the Evil Queen and Grim Reaper, among others on Saturday, Oct. 26. On the Haunted Walk (noon-3 pm), vampires, ghosts, warlocks, witches, wizards and fairies will slip in and out of the fall foliage of Prospect Park’s Lookout Hill.

Eerie moans and groans will follow costumed youngsters and their families as they trek cautiously along the Hill’s spooky paths. They will confront a conjurer, a giant pumpkin, the Evil Queen, the Magic Mirror and Snow White, as well as earth spirits, talking body parts and the cat queen, to name a few.

If you haven’t been scared out of your wits yet, head downhill to the Halloween Carnival on the Park’s Nethermead at the bottom of Lookout Hill (11:30 am-3:30 pm) for ring toss, roll the dice, miniature golf, a horse race, soccer kick, croquet, beanbag and a frisbee and football toss. There will also be face painting, $1 pony rides, a quilting exhibit and workshop with tutor, crayon coloring for toddlers, and mask and key chain-making. The Brooklyn Pageant Project, a local volunteer performance group, will perform, as will the "Ukulele Lady," Phyllis Capello, telling stories through music and song.

Also making an appearance will be the "Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) StoryTraveler" bookmobile. Books will be given away to children, ages pre-K through grade 6. There will be interactive storytelling, puppet and illusion shows.

Admission to all events is free. The nearest park entrance to Lookout Hill is Prospect Park Southwest at 16th Street. The F train to 15th Street or B68 bus will bring you close. For further haunting information, call (718) 965-8954.

Then, on Halloween night, dress up in your spooky, kitschy or satirical costume finest for the 17th Annual Park Slope Halloween Parade. The parade, sponsored by the Park Slope Civic Council, starts on Seventh Avenue at 12th Street on Thursday, Oct. 31, at 7 pm and proceeds up the avenue.
