It’s time to celebrate Halloween at the LIC Flea & Food.
This weekend, attend the Long Island City market in your Halloween costume to get you a discount of $2 off your first beer. And that’s not all. The market, located at the outdoor lot on the corner of Fifth Street and 46th Avenue, is also hosting special events for children with prizes.
On Saturday, Oct. 18, adults can have a photograph taken of their children in their Halloween costumes for a chance to win exciting prizes. The contest is open for a limited time of two hours, starting at 10 a.m. On Sunday, Oct. 19, the competition is open only for costumed pets. Visitors who get their costumed pet photographed will be eligible for a prize. This contest is only open for a limited time, between noon and 3 p.m.
The main attraction, however, is a special pumpkin patch featuring Halloween pumpkins straight from the farm.
The regular vendors selling food, antiques, art, fashion and collectibles will also be at the market.
LIC Flea & Food is open every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will run through the end of the year. The LIC Flea Beer Garden is open during the hours of operation of the flea market.
