Happy, Merry, Enjoy! – Merry Mounds Video Shot at Washington Square Park

** Recycled – modified – Entry from December, 24, 2008 **

Happy Holidays! (Blogging a bit less frequently now but) There’s still more in store for the New Year!

Since you can never get enough of the Mounds, this is a delightful clip of kids at Washington Square Park sledding and frolicking in the snow. The video features Karen Carpenter’s version of the song “Sleigh Ride” and illustrates how the children gravitate towards the Mounds as places of spontaneous play. Perfect if you are in need of a bit of holiday spirit.

Produced by Matt Davis (“SQUARE: Straightening out Washington Square Park“).

Happy, Merry, Enjoy — “Merry Mounds” Video Showcases Winter Frolic at Washington Sq Park

Merry Christmas Eve! I’m taking a blogging break until Monday, December 29th but there’s so much more in store for the New Year!

And, since you can never get enough of the Mounds, I know, this is a delightful video clip of kids at Washington Square Park using the Mounds for sledding and frolicking in the snow produced by Matt Davis (“SQUARE: Straightening out Washington Square Park“).  The song features Karen Carpenter’s irresistible version of the  song “Sleigh Ride” and illustrates how the children gravitate towards the Mounds as places of spontaneous play. The music fits in perfectly and it is worth your time watching especially if you are in need of a bit of holiday spirit.
