The event was organized by the Puppetry Arts Theater and hosted at PS 15 in Red Hook. There were dance and cheerleading performances, games, giveaways, snacks and a flea market.
Kids bounced in a bouncy house and hung out with Spiderman, who came with representatives from Regal Cinemas.
“Once the weather is great, it’s good,” Roxanne Cross, a Regal Cinemas employee, said of the festival.
Regal Cinemas attends the event every year, and this year brought along a costumed Spiderman in honor of the new Amazing Spiderman movie. Kids posed for pictures with the superhero, including Isaiah Llera, a PS 15 student, who was wearing his own Spiderman sweatshirt.
Entrance to the festival was free, while snacks, crafts and t-shirt decorating all cost between $2 and $4. Children competed in hula hoop contests, and the first 100 kids to show up got free goodie bags.
“We had a lot of fun,” Red Hook resident Natasha Flores said. “My daughter performed with her dance group, Amazing Features, and then we stayed and munched a little bit.”
