KIDS in LIC get a trick for Halloween this year, as a hallowed tradition seems to have laid fallow in 2023. We’re talking about the Annual Halloween Parade along Vernon Boulevard. Not sure what happened or why, maybe the powers-that-be deemed the kids unworthy this year?
Rumors have it that safety concerns, lack-of-momentum, and fill-in-the-blank are the reasons. But in fairness, maybe it’s time for some new powers-that-be to be tapped on the shoulder for the LIC Star Chamber? Obviously members of Skull & Bones should have priority given the assignment, but I’ve heard it rumored that there’s a Cornell alum in the mix. Cornell?!?
Seriously folks, two parades were cancelled due to the pandemic and this is the Annual Halloween Parade, not Biannual like Christmas at the in-laws. Instead of kvetching, it’s time for a new generation to step up, take the reigns – maybe in an official capacity – and get chocolate done. But I warn you, and this is very, very scary: it will take
some a lot of effort!
//IN the meantime, there is a wonderful Halloween event planned by the Hunters Point Parks Conservancy tomorrow (Saturday, October 28). It’s at The Oval along the waterfront from 4pm – 8:30pm and includes an outdoor screening of Hocus Pocus at the conclusion. Details below.
//THERE is also the Halloween Harvest Festival tomorrow at Socrates Sculpture Park from 12pm – 5pm. Details below.
