Labor Day is behind us and everyone in the office is drinking pumpkin spice lattes. We’re refusing to put away our summer clothes until we absolutely have to—but we’re also starting to get excited about the impending fall chill.


For those of us ready to celebrate fall the way it’s meant to be celebrated, Luna Park’s Halloween Harvest festival happens every weekend until November 1. The family-friendly festival features face painting, pumpkin picking, magic shows, balloon artists, and more.

This year, Halloween Harvest is bigger and better then ever. Luna Park has expanded the fun into the Scream Zone section of the park where guests can pick and paint a pumpkin at Grandmas Hay Maze and Pumpkin Patch, which is just steps away from the newest addition to the fall fun, Kooky Spooky Karaoke.


Luna Park—which opens at noon every Saturday and Sunday—will be decked out in its autumn finery. The legendary amusement park is located right off Coney Island’s iconic boardwalk, and you don’t have to pay an entry fee to get in. Just jump on the D/F or N/Q trains!

All of their regular attractions will be open. In addition to the historic Coney Island Cyclone Rollercoaster, you’ll find a variety of games and over 25 rides ranging from mild to extreme thrills, including the brand-new Brooklyn Barge, Power Surge, and WindstarZ.
