Hundreds of kids will try to scare the bejeezus out of adults by wearing with spooky, crazy costumes at the Fourth Annual Coney Island Children’s Halloween Parade on Saturday, Oct. 26.
Councilman Domenic Recchia (D-Coney Island-Gravesend-Bensonhurst) is co-hosting the parade along with two business organizations, the Alliance for Coney Island and Coney Island USA.
The parade will take place on the Coney Island Boardwalk.
The day of fun will begin with a ceremony at MCU Ball Park, 1905 Surf Ave., at 11 a.m., featuring live music, magicians, face painting, costumed characters and other events.
The parade route runs along the boardwalk from MCU Ball Park to Luna Park. The owners of Luna Park have agreed to host all of the participants after the parade.
This year’s parade, which is taking place three days before the one year anniversary of Super-storm Sandy, will be a unique celebration of Coney Island’s vibrancy and resiliency, Recchia said.
The hurricane hit Coney Island hard, destroying several homes and causing severe damage to scores of buildings.
Last year, the Third Annual Coney Island Children’s Halloween Parade attracted the participation of more than 600 children.
