Enjoying all things fall at Rye Town Park
November 1, 2018 at 6:05 a.m.
After getting matching colorful face paint, Rye Brook resident Camila Rosas (left) and Port Chester resident Alejandra Chica rush over to watch the animal demonstration. The 3-year-olds waited patiently to gently feel Cookie Puss, the short tail opossum at the second annual Fall Festival at Rye Town Park on Saturday, Oct. 20.
It may be a fall festival, but ice cream is always in season. Town of Rye administrative assistant and chief festival organizer Sara Summa scoops out the bright blue sweet provided by business sponsor Longford’s Ice Cream for an attending child.
Port Chester resident Evelyn Mayan helps her 4-year-old son Nicholas cover a pumpkin with several layers of multicolored paint.
With his mother, Greenwich, Conn. resident Dawn Fuller, by his side, dapperly dressed 4-year-old Fuller Medhurst shows off some crazy dance moves while listening to Songs for Seeds.
As The Nature of Things educator Marissa Close introduces Dill the Rouen Duck to a group, Rye resident Tom Knight leans his 20-month-old daughter Grace in so she can feel just how soft those feathers are for herself.
New Rochelle resident Vuk Vlajkovic, 3, is starting to look very spooky as Port Chester resident Linda Torres makes his face look like a skeleton. Torres painted dozens of kids’ faces during the festival representing her father’s Port Chester-based business Lobetito Show.
The smile on the face of Maximo, a 7-year-old Sharpeagle (a Shar-Pei and Beagle mix), shows pets clearly enjoy getting festive, too. The Port Chester pooch wears an argyle sweater as he sits next to his new friend—an inflatable ghoul.
Two-year-old Mamaroneck resident Ashley Peduto is on the run to examine every single fall decoration around.
While his dad chats with friends, 3-year-old Dobbs Ferry resident Wyeth Galen busies himself with a giant bite of a sugary doughnut.
Children eagerly line up to wait for their turn inside the scary jack-o’-lantern bouncy house.
