It’s spooky and it’s kooky — the Halloween Harvest Festival at Socrates Sculpture Park on Oct. 28 is back for costumes, crafts, and more.

The season always goes out with a bang with the Halloween Harvest Festival! This year’s theme is Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, with vibrant performances and music presented by Ballet Folklórico Mexicano de Nueva York, which has been sharing Mexican heritage and culture with the New York City community for more than 30 years.

Join in on spooky costume- and art-making activities with Socrates artists, fantastical face-painting with Agostino Arts, and add your mementos and relics to ancestral altars set up throughout the landscape. Urban shaman Mama Donna will be offering harvest animal blessings for your pets, and if your pooch is in costume you can participate in a Socrates tradition — our annual Canine Costume Contest with fun prizes and local judges, including Château le Woof!

Halloween Harvest Festival, Oct. 28, from 11 am to 3 pm. Free.

Socrates Sculpture Park [32-01 Vernon Blvd. in Astoria, (718) 956–1819; www.socratessculpturepark.org].
