CALENDAR

A neighborhood evokes a great sense of pride for all those who contribute to it. As an individual, you already know you can create the good in countless ways, but when we work together as a group, there’s no limit to the impact we can make on our community.  Whether you volunteer through any of the many committees, or attend a neighborhood event with friends and family, together we're making Floral Park a better community for everyone.

 
 

Events

WALK OF FRIGHT

Saturday & Sunday evening, October 24 & 25

We may or may not be trick or treating this Halloween, but we'll certainly be dressing up for the occasion! Floral Park is having a Halloween/Autumn  decorating contest in October with judging in six categories: Scariest, Most Theatrical, Best Use of Pumpkins, Most Creative, Best Harvest Theme, and Best Use of Fall Colors. Judging will take place on Thursday, October 22 after dark. Winners will be announced Friday, October 23 and will receive yard signs heralding their award-winner status. Then on Saturday & Sunday, October 24 & 25, join your friends and neighbors in strolling the neighborhood to view the seasonal decorations in our first ever Walk of Fright.  It's gonna be spooktacular!

HALLOWEEN TRICK OR TREATING

Saturday, October 31

The Center for Disease Control has deemed that traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating poses a HIGH RISK  for spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 and is therefore discouraged.  Instead, they recommend lower risk alternatives such as:

  • Carving or decorating pumpkins with members of your household and displaying them

  • Carving or decorating pumpkins outside, at a safe distance, with neighbors or friends

  • Decorating your house, apartment, or living space

  • Doing a Halloween scavenger hunt where children are given lists of Halloween-themed things to look for while they walk outdoors from house to house admiring Halloween decorations at a distance

  • Having a virtual Halloween costume contest

  • Having a Halloween movie night with people you live with

  • Having a scavenger hunt-style trick-or-treat search with your household members in or around your home rather than going house to house.
