Stan Brown, of Stan’s Pepper Steppers, referees an old fashioned tug of war. On October 21 the Parks Department hosted the annual Fall Festival at Bayswater Park on Beach 32 Street. Sponsored by Councilman James Sanders Jr., the festival included arts and crafts for young people, a pumpkin patch, games, a puppet show and a petting zoo.

A puppet show delighted all.
The line was long for horseback rides.
Five hundred pumpkins were snatched up from the pumpkin patch within 90 minutes.

On your mark, get set, Go!
