Halloween Harvest Festival
SATURDAY OCTOBER 28, 2017 | 11 AM – 3 PM rain or shine
Presented in partnership with Ballet Folklórico Mexicano de Nueva York
The Socrates season always goes out with a BANG with our Halloween Harvest Festival! This year’s theme is Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead with a vibrant procession and dance performance presented by Ballet Folklórico Mexicano de Nueva York, which has been sharing Mexican heritage and culture with the NYC community for more than 30 years.
Join us for spooky costume- and art-making with Socrates artists and Free Style Arts Association, fantastical face-painting with Agostino Arts, and add your mementos and relics to an ancestral community altar.
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 fun prizes and local judges, including Château le Woof, Friends with Four Paws Rescue, and Rapawzel Dog Grooming & Day Care!
