The Haunted House is where they have the most fun! Teens modify the ‘scare’ for little ones so everyone is welcome. There are people who come because they know they are going to have a good time,” said Virginia and Mirna, Kitchen Staff of Kingsbridge Heights Community Center.
Other activities included cookie decorating, mask decorating, a haunted castle themed photo booth, raffles, and more! “The Harvest Festival is a yearly event that brings people together, whether they are staff, participants, family members, or new to KHCC. This is an agency-wide event, which means that all departments are working collaboratively to make sure that this event is a success for all who come,” said Jessica Cuevas, Teen Center Director of the Kingsbridge Heights Community Center.
In our commitment to providing children and youth a safe place to be themselves, this event is entirely free. Costumes were highly encouraged! Kids and adults all dressed up as superheroes and supervillains, cats and bats, witches and wizards, and more!
