The Peoples' Picnic was an exciting event by Kingston Midtown Rising and UMeWe. The group presented the "Good Neighbor Award" to MyKingstonKids Executive Director, Frank Waters for sharing his vision and supporting hundreds of children and families in the Kingston neighborhoods thru fun activities, education and imagination.

We built our first Soap Box Car which was not as easy task. We stuck together, stayed persistent and made it to the finish line. Our ship was called, "Pirates Of Kingston" which was the theme for the Halloween Fest. Here are a few photos from the event. We had a great meeting the participants and the community. Thanks everyone for showing us such great support at our first Derby. We'll be ready for next year!

We enjoyed a great day participating in Forsyth's Park annual Fall Festival in October. We took a stab at making slime with the children. At first it was not an easy task, however in due and with correct recipe we became slime experts before the day was. Here are a few photos of some of the children and their slime masterpieces.

The Friday the 13th Masquerade Ball was a very special event to us here at MyKingstonKids. It was our very first fundraiser and the Halloween event at the Lace Mill. We had a chance to enjoy an evening for the adults and engage with our donors, sponsors and supporters. Thank you everyone for making this such a fun and fantastic event. so many community leaders stopped by in costume which made the night phenomenal.


Here are a few photos behind the scenes of creating the Kids Fest 2017 event. From shopping for wallpaper to creating candy canes, ice cream cone  balloons and even the yellow brick road.

The Kingston Halloween Fest on October 28th was a success! Organized by My Kingston Kids and Seed Song Farms, in association with Rupco, Texas Roadhouse and Chronogram, the Kingston NY based Fall festival was the event of the year. Over 1000 Halloween lovers of all ages attended this awesome kids’ event at Seed Song Farm. With all of the attractions it offered, that is not surprising at all!

Every guest was greeted with a delicious hot apple cider provided by Kingston Midtown Rising, and by a spooky Halloween story by Captain Kidd (played by the lovely Autumn Pond) and other beloved storytellers. Of course, there was great entertainment for kids, too: gallons and gallons of slime were made by children of all ages, the amazing Seed Song showed them how to make pizza on the outdoor brick oven, and everyone was spooked by the Halloween House horror-themed displays!

That’s not all, though: over 250 free pumpkins were given away for free to lots of lucky participants, kids got to pet the friendly sheep at the petting zoo area and the whole crowd was entertained by the awesome band Digital Vibrations. Plus, the organization Parrots for Peace brought some fantastic entertainment too, bringing some lovely parrots to the Halloween Fest and taking pictures of our guests holding them!

The night time events were just as exciting, with the Kids’ Fashion Show and the gorgeous backdrop made for it by Cheryl Crispell and all of the other performances that charmed the guests.

The dance performance of Michael Jackson’s Thriller by the CCE was brilliant, too! The night ended in the most marvellous way, with the pumpkin head sculpture burnt to a crisp in a fire that entranced the crowd.

The success of the event was also given thanks to the tasty food provided by Texas Roadhouse, Rudy Mae’s, Kettle Korn and many others, as well as service vendors such as YMCA, that provided bike helmets to the children, Esopus Police department, that provided children’s IDs. Of course, the Halloween Fest wouldn’t have been so lovely without the volunteers from the Kingston Boys and Girls Club as well as Kiwanis and Seed Song Farm’s community. Thank you for the amazing times, see you next year!
