Forest Park played host to what is becoming an annual tradition on Saturday — a Fall Festival.

Hosted and funded through allocations by Councilman Eric Ulrich (R-Ozone Park), the fair was attended by hundreds of children who enjoyed Halloween-themed bounce houses, shows and a hay maze completed with a pumpkin patch, where kids could pick a pumpkin and paint it.

The city Department of Transportation was on hand with one of its trucks, as were the FDNY and Sanitation Department. Across Woodhaven Boulevard, kids were able to ride the landmarked Carousel one last time before it closes for the winter.

Ulrich said he hopes the festival, which expanded since last year, will become a yearly staple at the park.
