Howard Beach held a "Post Halloween Festival"

After an unexpected October snowstorm canceled Howard Beach’s traditional Halloween parade down Cross Bay Boulevard, the Howard Beach Kiwanis extended the holiday for an additional weekend to host their “Post Halloween Festival” on Saturday, November 5 at St. Helen School.

“We still had to do something for the kids,” said Howard Beach Kiwanis Club Secretary Dino Bono.

About 100 attendees filled the school’s parking lot for face painting, inflatable rides and a photo booth. A DJ spun tunes all afternoon and 20 kids took home $25 American Express gift cards as prizes for the best costumes.
