Halloween Harvest Festival at Socrates Sculpture Park
Head to LIC for the sculpture garden's Halloween Harvest Festival, featuring NYC's second largest doggie costume contest, pumpkin carving and catapulting competition (yes, you read that right), artist-led workshops, and the Shinbone Alley Stilt Band. The Flight of The Gourds starts at 2pm when two teams square off in a pumpkin carving competition: Kids Vs. Adults. The winning pumpkins will be yeeted into the sky. If that's not your jam, sign up for the palm leaf-making workshop at noon with artist Fellow Levan Mindiashvili.
