An estimated two thousand community residents attended Sunday’s Brooklyn South Showcase Festival in Marine Park. Children and adults got to mingle and meet with police officers from the thirteen precincts that comprise Brooklyn South. In addition to entertainment, including a hayride and games, for young and old, there was a variety of foods for everyone to sample. Below are pictures from the seven-hour event.

The event was originally scheduled in August, but was postponed due to the blackout.

The showcase was so successful, Chief Fox said there are plans underway to make it an annual event.
