Join Hudson River Park’s Community Compost Program for a FREE family pumpkin smash! Dispose of your leftover pumpkins the fun and sustainable way at this fall festival and pumpkin smash. We provide the tools and you bring the pumpkins for a smashing good time.  When not smashing pumpkins, your family will enjoy games, crafts, seasonal snacks and refreshments, and face painting by Silly Cheeks. This year’s festival also features kid-friendly special performances! At 12 PM, enjoy a performance by Hudson RiverKids Favorite, Story Pirates, who bring their audiences’ imaginative stories to life. At 1 PM, get ready to be amazed by (and laugh along with) the interactive magic of Seth Dale.
