It’s beginning to feel a lot like… HALLOWEEN!
This is the time of year for you to express your true inner child and get creative with costumes. New York City has something for everyone to do to celebrate and NYC Ferry is your ride there.
The NIA Halloween Festival is Thursday, October 31, from 4 PM to 8 PM! This free event will have a costume contest, candy and popcorn, bouncy houses, music, pumpkin painting, and more. The NIA’s mission is to build strong children, strong families, and strong communities. Come out to Owl’s Head Park to celebrate with the community. Take the NYC Ferry South Brooklyn route to Bay Ridge, and it’s an 8-minute walk from the landing.
Bring your pumpkins, Jack-o-lanterns, and gourds to Roosevelt Island for a “smashing good time” at the Roosevelt Island Pumpkin Smash!

If you aren’t able to make it to the event, you can still bring your pumpkins to a food scrap drop-off site. Come to Manhattan Park on November 2nd at 11 AM so you can be part of the fun! You’ll also have a chance to win a 30-day NYC Ferry pass.
