Dozens of shoppers and their kids took part in a pre-Easter celebration at the Flatbush Caton Market on March 31.

At “Spring Fling and Easter Tings,” out-and-about locals at the market got to shop, and let their kids partake in a few fun activities, said the event’s face-painter.

“It was a success. I really loved seeing people in the community come out,” said Gabrielle Robergeau, who runs the professional entertainment venture Fame and Fête with her mother Gail. “People would walk past us by themselves, and then they would come back again with their kids — and they really loved it.”

Robergeau painted 15 doe-eyed canvasses, and her mother served them cotton candy and a variety of flavored popcorn. She said that the Caribbean-themed market, which opened in January, is the perfect place to do a cultural spin on all sorts of holidays, and it is finally becoming familiar to its neighbors.

“My mom and I are from Trinidad and Tobago and we love to see the culture, and I think having these events is great to the benefit of the community,” said Robergeau.
