Enjoy Halloween Harvest at Luna Park #HalloweenHarvest #MyLunaween
Looking for a family friendly Fall activity as we head into October? Then plan to visit Coney Island's Luna Park to experience the Halloween Harvest. But if your family isn't into the scary stuff, don't worry. To be honest it's more Fall Harvest then Scary Halloween.
Note: I was invited as media to this event and received Luna Park wristband/tickets. However any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
We attended a media preview during the first opening weekend and enjoyed so many activities, along with Luna Park rides and games.
To start we met the not scary scarecrow in the front of the park. While there you can try guessing the weight of the pumpkin to win prizes up to $1,000.
You can also see the Luna Park makeover. It really helped set the "Fall" tone with all the Hay stacks and Halloween decorations around the park.
We made sure to check the schedule and plan all our stops to enjoy the activities.
As we walked through Luna Park, we met costume characters who carried bags filled with treats from sponsors Welch's Fruit Snacks, Cow Tales and Campfire Marshmallow, that the kids could pick their treats from.
After getting our treats we headed over the Pumpkin Patch, where we were greeted by Dorthy and the Tin Man.
Then my son walked through the hay maze (it's nice and short) into the Pumpkin Patch where he picked out his Pumpkin. He also stop for the photo with the friendly Lion.
Then we headed over to decorate and paint our Pumpkin. For some reason my son decided to paint his Pumpkin orange! Like really? I insisted that he add more "color" to it. So he added some blue. HA!
After leaving the Pumpkin Patch, we ran around the park....
.....dancing on stage
.....trying to get into Kooky Spooky Karaoke. It was a very popular activity.
.....getting a balloon hat. My son wanted a sword but I felt a hat was safer.
.....enjoy the Luna Park rides. Sometime more then three times
.....playing games and winning prizes (I did help a little)
.....visiting the Petting Zoo and getting a Pony Ride.
We could have stayed and enjoyed all the fun into the evening but it was time to say goodbye and head home. But the Luna Park's Halloween Harvest is a great event to enjoy one day (or weekend).
Experience all the thrills, chills and Halloween frills during Halloween Harvest at Luna Park running through October 30th. The park will be abuzz with festive and seasonal activities along with special events.
