Councilwoman Sandra Ung hosted her district’s annual Flushing Fall Festival at Kissena Corridor Park on Saturday, Sept. 24. The festival was held in partnership with GLOW Community Center, as well as more than 30 sponsors.
There were several forms of entertainment provided for the whole family, including live performances, arts and crafts, activities for the kids, free giveaways and a special appearance by Mr. and Mrs. Met.
In addition to Ung, several other local leaders took part in celebrating this event. Among those in attendance for the opening ceremony to kick off the festival were state Senator John Liu, Councilwoman Tiffany Cabán and representatives from the offices of Governor Kathy Hochul, Comptroller Brad Lander, Queens Borough President Donovan Richards and Queen District Attorney Melinda Katz.
“I know the community looks forward to this event every year and it was great to be with so many families in the park enjoying a perfect autumn afternoon,” Ung said. “Thank you to GLOW Community Center and all of the event’s sponsors for helping make the day happen.”
