Newsday’s 2016 Flick and Treat Festival Oct. 15 is an all-in-one stop for spooky fun.
The free family-friendly event includes food vendors, giveaways, sponsor booths and entertainment for kids before a screening of the popular movie “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (PG-13).
The free screening is held on the lawn at Newsday’s headquarters in Melville, projected after sunset on a giant 40-foot screen.Top Halloween costumes for kids
Gates open at 3 p.m.-- and that’s when many people arrive to stake out their spot on the lawn and spend a few hours before showtime trick-or-treating through the festival. There’s a small pumpkin patch, too.
Admission is free, although tickets are required — print them early as the event often sells out in advance. Rain date Sunday, Oct. 16. For tickets and more information, visit newsday.com/flickandtreat.
