Queens kids who can’t wait another week for Halloween can find some fun this weekend during the first annual Halloween parade in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras-Copeland and Assemblyman Jeffrion Aubry will lead the parade, which begins at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 25. The procession will run from behind the Hall of Science to the Playground for All Children.
The parade will be followed by a costume contest judged by the elected officials. Participants are encouraged to wear a costume for a chance to win a laptop.
A Shocktoberfest will also be held after the parade from noon to 3 p.m. at the Playground for All Children.
This year’s planned Shocktoberfest activities include a pumpkin patch, haunted house, bounce houses and crafts and activities for children of all ages.
