Relax and soak up the sights of the gorgeous fall foliage along the Hudson River on this day-long cruise adventure to Bear Mountain and back, where you'll experience the famed Oktoberfest celebration. Seastreak's double-hulled catamarans provide the ultimate in sailing comfort, with indoor and outdoor seating, plus a cash bar. Then once you get to Bear Mountain, enjoy a one-mile nature walk that ends at the world-famous festival, known for its authentic German food, beer, music, entertainment, craft shopping and more. You can catch the boat in Highlands, New Jersey or at Pier 11 in New York, before heading to the mountain. And after a full day of fun, you may just catch a beautiful sunset over the water as you cruise back to the city. Learn More

This event was good for younger children...I'd say up to around age 8. I was disappointed that the majority of the pumpkins were styrofoam and not actually carved. They did have lots of interesting characters made out of them though. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and couldn't have been nicer.
This event runs from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, with times entries at 6:30 and 7:00pm.
And there’s more!
Enjoy the antics of entertainers welcoming you to the evening at the Visitor Center.
Pick up your treat bag at the Reflecting Pool and decorate it with leaf rubbings.
Go trick-or-treating along the Whole Foods Market® Trick-or-Treat Trail for tasty treats.
Stop by the Discovery Plaza to purchase snacks and beverages. Call creatures of the night — owls, bats, toads, and crickets — at the Boulders.
Dig for Decomposers at the Discovery Center. Dissect owl pellets in the Discovery Center to find out what they eat for dinner.
At the Dodge Activity Center, decorate your gourd and take home carving tips.
Visit the giant pumpkin displays and walk out along the Mitsubishi Wild Wetland Trail — if you dare!
Listen in on spooky short stories at the Wild Wetland Trail gazebo.
