They had a ball at the mall!
Mall-o-ween Kids Club at Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin gave costume connoisseurs of all ages a chance to dress up and enjoy fall festivities on Oct. 25.
Kids, teens, and parents wore Halloween costumes and watched circus acts and eerie dance routines at the afternoon celebration.
One performer, whose trick involved balancing atop three chairs, said the youngsters were a great audience because when they liked — or disliked — a stunt, they were very frank, so he was able to tailor his act to their tastes.
“Children are wonderful because they are honest,” said Rob Lok, who performs as Dr. Know-It-All. “I like to perform for children of all ages.”
The day wasn’t just filled with silly acts — dancers from the Covenant Ballet Theatre danced to Michael Jackson’s chilling hit, “Thriller.” The dancers wore ripped clothing and painted their faces white and black like ghoulish zombies of the iconic music video.
But the day was filled with plenty of laughs. One mother, who dressed her son as a clown because she said it fit his goofy demeanor, said there were no tricks about it — the day was a treat.
“It was good,” said Racquel Dade.
