Halloween Harvest Festival
SATURDAY OCTOBER 29, 2016 | 11 AM – 3 PM rain or shine
Come one, come all to this year’s circus-themed Halloween Harvest Festival! Join us for art and costume-making with Socrates artists and build a large-scale collaborative circus elephant sculpture with Free Style Arts Association. Enjoy tricks and treats from local vendors like The Queens Kickshaw, Idlewild: A Queens Culture Guide, funnel cake from A Lil’ Bit of Fun, and sweets from Single Girl Cookies. Get your face painted with Agostino Arts, jump into an adventure storytelling activity with The Queens Bookshop Initiative, meet adoptable pups with Friends with Four Paws, check out Gary the Great’s magic show, wild balloon animals from Joey Ballooza, and a special performance of traditional circus arts and experimental theater by Circus Amok! Urban Shaman Mama Donna will be offering harvest animal blessings for your pets, and if your pooch is in costume you can participate in a Socrates tradition- our annual Canine Costume Contest with judges and prizes from local partners like City Vet, Chateau Le Woof and Pooches Sport & Spa!
