Even Superman paints pumpkins on Halloween in LIC

From my laboratory in the castle east
To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
To get a jolt from my electrodes

Don’t let the fabulous October weather play a trick on you, Halloween is upon us.  Yet this year in LIC there will be a little twist for the youngsters and their parents, or maybe more of a mash-up of the monster-kind.  That’s because the Annual LIC Halloween Parade has merged with the PS78Q PTA Fall Festival1 to create a mammoth one-day extravaganza! (1-day, thank goodness!)

It’s this Sunday, October 29 and the fun starts at noon with the parade’s kick-off in front of the police station on 50th Ave.  The end of the route is at 525 46th Avenue (next to the LIC Flea) where the Fall Festival will be going on from 12:30pm until 4pm.

I’m not going to describe all the happenings and events that will be occurring along the route and at the festival, that’s for you to discover.  What I will tell you is that the weather isn’t looking very good for Sunday, but the Festival will be indoors.

Capping the day, will be the 51st airing of ‘It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’ on ABC-TV at 8pm.

“Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He’s gotta pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.”  -Linus

The PS78Q Fall Festival doesn’t just happen by itself, they need volunteers to make it happen every year.  Parents please click here to sign-up for a volunteer assignment.
