Saturdays Hip Hop Halloween Celebration hosted by Rockaway Waterfront Alliance and the Rockaway Youth Taskforce was a huge success with kids from throughout the peninsula coming to celebrate in a colorful display of costumes! Youngsters painted pumpkins, took part in holiday crafts and got their faces painted for the gathering that took place in the Rockaway Hip Hop Garden at Beach 59 Street. RYTF and RWA youth all helped in the leading the activities for the youngsters.

Geoff Rawlings and Blue decked out the Rockaway Firehouse with scary spiders and skulls that the kids who passed were excited to see. Thanks to Photographer Giles Ashford for capturing the days spirit with the photos featured here. Special shout out to Capital One Bank for sponsoring this year’s Halloween Celebration with free food, pumpkins, and activities for the public.
