More than 60 Queens children, including baseball and basketball players, cheerleaders and scouts in uniform, marched down 27th Avenue to a riverside park Saturday morning as part of a parade and celebration of the Two Coves Community of Astoria and Goodwill Industries of Greater New York.

The parade, which was sponsored by the Two Coves Community Redevelopment and Business Advisory Council in cooperation with the city Fire and Parks Departments, featured dancers, clowns, and Hot Dog, a fire-safety character.
