Fall is in full swing at the Queens Botanical Garden in Flushing, Queens, as its first Harvest Fest was underway on Sunday.

The event included a pumpkin patch, garden tour, live bluegrass music, food tents and local vendors.

Organizers pointed out the garden's beauty in the autumn months.

"I hope that people are just inspired by nature and plants, because, you know, they're beautiful," said Queens Botanical Garden Executive Director Susan Lacerte. "That is why I am in this business, because it just blows me away, the variety in plants. And that is what I want people to get."

"It's a fantastic day to come out here. We were just blown away," said a visitor.

"We're having a great time, seeing different things in the environment and just participating with everyone," said another visitor.
