An Old-New Tradition: Halloween on Roosevelt Island

One of the joys of living on Roosevelt Island is the many festivals, including the annual Halloween event.

I love that the same rides and inflatable houses appear every time (courtesy of Aardvark Amusements, which I assume locked down the contract by being first in the phone book). We've only been here since 2012, but the Halloween festival already feels like a time-honored tradition — especially for the kids, since even our oldest can scarcely remember life before we moved to this strange little isle.

Here's a video of this year...

...and last year.

And fortunately, Alice didn't barricade herself in a bouncy castle this time around.
