It’ll be treats not tricks at Luna Park‘s Halloween Harvest this month.

The amusement park’s annual free fall festival — which begins this Saturday, September 26, and lasts through Sunday, November 1 — will feature story telling, pumpkin picking, balloon art, crafts, s’mores, doggie costume parades, karaoke, and more.

“Halloween Harvest is going to be spectacular this fall,” said Alberto Zamperla, President of Zamperla Group and operator of Luna Park. “Luna Park may be all about the summer, but we also embrace the beautiful autumn weekends and provide wonderful and diverse entertainment and attractions for families to enjoy.”

Luna Park itself — which opens at noon every Saturday and Sunday — will be decked with Halloween and autumn-themed decorations all month long, and all the thrilling rides and food vendors will be open for business as usual during fall weekends.

Here is a schedule of just a few of the family-friendly activities going on at the amusement park this season:
