Hundreds headed out to the Oval on Sunday for Stuyvesant Town’s annual carnival for kids, which included games, pumpkin painting, a vaudeville act by performers from Parallel Exit and the opportunity for whole families to march in a costume parade. There was also plenty of candy for trick or treaters.
Though last year’s Halloween event was cut short due to warnings about the hurricane that came the next day, this time, the worst thing weather-wise was a bit of wind.
Popular choices for costumes were Star Wars characters and superheroes for boys, princesses and fairies for girls and animals for babies and toddlers. One tiny pumpkin was the son of comptroller hopeful and Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, who was there with his family.
For those going the DIY route with costumes, there was no short of creativity to be found with a few standout costumes including the L train, a slice of bacon and a robot.
