Halloween Fest at a glance

Within only four years we have changed the lives for hundreds of families and have provided children with something great to look forward to that could replace some of their hardships if only on this one special day. This year in partnership with Rondout Savings Bank and the YMCA Ulster for the first time ever we will create Kingston's First MyKK Halloween Parade.
