With the last of summer’s heat waves finally broken, it started to feel a bit like fall on Thursday, Oct. 22 at the recently remodeled Runway. Nestled in between a tented tap dance class and the Family Fall Harvest photo backdrop, complete with bales of hay and loads of cherished pumpkins, was a Halloween kids crafting event sponsored by Runway and So Fly Kids Academy of Dance.
Masked participants had their temperatures taken before being seated at socially distanced tables. Tiny fingers used safety scissors to cut strips of carrot-colored construction paper. The goal: to craft an adorable three-dimensional pumpkin.
Beatrice Ruso, Runway Property Marketing Manager, was in charge of the event. “We’re just trying to provide an opportunity for kids to get out of the house,” said Ruso, adding, “A lot of kids are doing classes inside, on Zoom, so we’ve set up a safe space where we can do some crafts with them.”
