Enjoy some early autumn fun for the whole family in Whitestone this weekend!

We Love Whitestone Civic Association and the 109th Precinct will host its third-annual Family Fun Day this Saturday at Francis Lewis Park from noon to 4 p.m.

 

Last year’s activities included face painting, balloon twisting, a bounce house, pony rides and a pumpkin giveaway and painting contest.

Over 5,000 people attended the event last year: including Mr. Met himself. George Mirtsopoulos, vice president of the We Love Whitestone Civic Association, promises this year’s event will be “bigger and better” than last.

“The event is open for residents and family members to come out and have a fun filled day,” said Mirtsopoulos. “The event is a way of giving back to the community by the NYPD and interacting with the community to raise awareness of the many police-community programs the NYPD offers.”

The event is also sponsored by the 109th Precinct Community Council, the Greater Whitestone Taxpayers Association and a list of local businesses who donated both goods and services.

Francis Lewis Park is located at 3rd Avenue & 147th Street in Whitestone.

Photos from last year’s event can be viewed below.
