The Village Halloween Parade had humble beginnings back in 1973, as neighborhood children in the West Village walked from house to house with their friends. Over the years it’s become a massive party with wildly costumed characters, puppets, bands, dancers and about two million spectators. Don’t let the crowd scare you off—this is a lively NYC tradition you won’t want to miss.
This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the annual Halloween Parade. Last year it was the first event cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy, so this year will be the Hallelujah halloween REVIVAL! Halloween-NYC has a Kickstarter Campaign to raise funds for the event.
