Bring your friends and family to Socrates' annual Halloween Harvest Festival. Make a costume with Socrates artists; listen to live music; enjoy a special art-making workshop with Free Style Arts Association; get your face painted by Agostino Arts; enter your dog in our annual Canine Costume Contest; and try harvest foods from local restaurants.
This season, invoke the spirits of Queens as we share the stories and legends of this historic waterway. Join the Greater Astoria Historical Society for a walking tour and learn the horrors and mysteries of the treacherous East River, from churning whirlpools and electric eels. Starting under the Hell Gate Bridge in Astoria Park (Shore Blvd.), tour participants will stroll through Old Astoria Village and walk along the East River waterfront to Socrates Sculpture Park where their journey will culminate with ghostly performances of the area’s haunted history, led by the Hell Gate Kid.
