The annual Sunnyside Gardens Park Oktoberfest is taking place Saturday and children throughout the area will be treated to a range of activities– from pumpkin decorating to face painting.
“This year we are expecting between 2,000 and 2500 attendees,” said Ty Sullivan, who is the MC for the event.
Sullivan said that there will be more than 900 pumpkins, a climbing wall, a story-telling tent, mechanical rides and live music for the kids by Richard Younger, a local performer. There will be craft tables for children to create and decorate necklaces, he added.
