HCZ Celebrates Halloween 2022

We love Halloween here at Harlem Children’s Zone! Across the Zone, we celebrated with a spooky, fairytale-themed haunted house, pumpkin painting, trick-or-treating, an Octoberfest party, and more!

Everyone got in on the fun, from our little ones in The Baby College to youth in our HCZ Promise Academy Charter Schools and Zone Afterschool Programs to our staff and community members at Community Pride. We hope you have a happy, safe, and spooky Halloween 2022!
