RAIN DATE: Nov. 1st

10:30 am - Parade & Concert
Spend Halloween with Princess Katie & Racer Steve who are leading the children's Halloween parade down Greenwich Ave and then end up at Washington Market Park where they'll perform a more cool, less creepy concert!
This year’s Washington Market Park parade will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Halloween. The festivities will include a live band and pony rides, and the parade will be led by Princess Katie and Racer Steve, a small children’s band. The Friends of Washington Market Park have a parade permit for Greenwich St. between the southern side of Greenwich and North Moore Sts.

The main entrance of the park at Duane St. is currently closed due to the construction of a new comfort station, so the children will march down Greenwich St. into the temporary park entrance at Reade St. The staff at Zucker’s Bagels will be waiting for them when they’re done marching, dressed up and giving away candy bags and mini chocolate bagels. The folks at Tribeca Treats at 94 Reade St. will also be giving out candy, and the Cosmopolitan Cafe on W. Broadway is holding a free apple festival from 2 p.m. until dark, where kids can enjoy candy apples and apple cider donuts, learn to press apples with a 150-year-old press, and go apple bobbing.

AOL: Princess Katie & Racer Steve: Kids' Music Parents Love

Children love repetition. They'll read the same books, watch the same movies, and listen to the same song over and over and over again, as many times as their parents will allow. And some of the stuff kids love is absolutely insufferable -- but you play it for them anyway, because you love them and it makes them happy.

If you're one Barney singalong away from losing your mind, it's time to get to know
Princess Katie & Racer Steve. The duo is a wonderful breath of fresh air in the world of children's entertainment.

Princess Katie & Racer Steve Album ArtThe couple got their start as a band when Katie enlisted Steve to perform with her in New York hospitals and events for at-risk kids. Though they'd never been songwriters, those kids inspired the duo to create something spectacular.

When you put Princess Katie & Racer Steve's
Songs for the Coolest Kids or Fast & Feisty in your CD player, you won't hear the usual high-pitched vocals and circus soundtrack noise that you find on most kids' albums. Princess Katie sings in an actual human voice -- often compared to Natalie Merchant -- while husband Racer Steve rocks a guitar like the big boys. Princess Katie & Racer Steve are far more than simply bearable for parents -- you'll probably love them as much as your kids do.

Repetition is no problem with the Princess Katie & Racer Steve albums, because each album offers up a great mix of different styles, including country, rock, rap, jazz, and Latin-inspired tunes. The sound is hip and mature, and the lyrics are packed with positive messages for kids. Princess Katie & Racer Steve's songs encourage kids to use their imaginations, always try their hardest, be kind and keep a positive attitude.

The Princess Katie & Racer Steve live show is an experience that children and parents alike will enjoy -- a high energy, family-friendly rock and roll show. The band will be on tour in early 2010 to promote their upcoming album,
Tiny Cool, scheduled for a February 16 release. Here's a list of confirmed tour dates -- see if Katie & Steve are coming to your town:

- January 17th at the Providence PAC in Providence, RI
