BROOKLYN - The frigid temperatures didn’t stop Bay Ridge residents from enjoying the Embrace Winter Festival on Saturday.

Shops, bars and restaurants along Third Avenue participating in the festival hosted free history lessons, art projects and games.

At Yellow Hook Grille, children made snowflakes out of paper, while down the street at King Falafel, a Bay Ridge Historical Society member told stories of what it was like to live in the neighborhood in the 1800s.

The festival has been an annual part of the tight-knit community since the 1970s.
