Everyone is welcome to attend and the event will benefit St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children. Details included below.
On Sunday October 28th 2012 Garden Works and the Knights of Columbus will be sponsoring and hosting the 4th annual Halloween Festival … for the kids at Bowne Park in Flushing from 11am to 4pm at 157th street and 32nd ave.

St. Mary’s is an invaluable resource within the community and throughout the area for children and families with special needs. The entire event is free; please thank our sponsors by helping them reach their donation goal of ($10,000) ten thousand dollars for the kids and families at St. Mary’s.
