On Saturday, October 29, hundreds of residents of Stuyvesant Town celebrated Halloween at the annual party for kids on the Oval. Activities included a haunted house, two bounce houses, face-painting, a bean toss and an obstacle course. Kids could also pick out their own pumpkin to decorate from a pumpkin patch on the lawn, or participate in other arts and crafts. Live entertainment included a band and a musician. Near the end of the event, a costume contest was held.
Doreen Straka, a parent who has been going to the event for five years, said, “It gets bigger and bigger every year.” Straka said her favorite activity is the pumpkin patch, and her daughter’s is the bouncy house.
