Did you march in the Great Neck Halloween parade this past weekend? Were you in town? Did you see those adorable little munchkins all dressed up? For the fifth year, the Village of Great Neck Plaza and the Business Improvement District hosted a wonderful Halloween parade for the children, closing Middle Neck Road to vehicular traffic and providing “treats” for the little ones. It was a great day!
Coming right on the heels of the Plaza’s annual AutoFest and Street Festival and then the Great Neck Park District’s Harvest Festival, it has been a couple of super “hometown” weeks here in Great Neck.
Different times during the year various municipalities, villages and organizations sponsor local festivities —- crafts fairs, antiques shows, etc. Each one is a special event, drawing our neighbors and friends from all over. Each event draws a large, festive crowd with fair-goers of all ages enjoying each and every day.
Great Neck may, at times, seem like a bigger city, but, really, we are quite a wonderful little hometown. And we’re proud! How nice for us all, in this modern, high tech, busy, frantic world, to be able to step back once in a while and just “smell the roses.”
Aren’t we lucky to live in Great Neck!
