Celebrate Halloween with the 41st Annual Greenwich Village Halloween Parade

The spookiest night of the year takes a fun new angle in one of NYC’s greatest traditions, the Village Halloween Parade!

Taking on the classic idea of parades in NYC, but with a twist, the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade is a wild, fun and crazy night of organized chaos which is fully open to all! Beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 31, join the hundreds of others who will dress up in costume and gallivant through the streets of one of NYC’s most extravagant neighborhoods.

village parade

Here’s the lowdown:

  • Anyone can participate but on one condition: you MUST be wearing a costume. No plain-clothed lame-o’s welcome!
    • If you’re marching in the parade, arrive on 6th and Canal between 7 and 9 p.m.
    • You’ll be marching up 6th, but really all you have to do is follow the crowd
    • No alcohol on the streets! There are plenty of bars in the area to get your fill, this is supposed to be a family friendly event, not a reason to get smashed.
  • There will be giant puppets, artists, dancers and over 50 bands from around the world playing some killer jams throughout the night.
  • This year’s theme is ‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’
  • If you don’t want to go, but would rather watch from home, you can find it on NY1
  • Want to volunteer to animate a giant puppet? I don’t know what that means either, but you can do that, too! http://www.halloween-nyc.com/volunteer.php

The Village Halloween Parade has been NYC’s premiere Halloween Parade for over 40 years now, and all inclusive to anyone who wants to be a part of the fun. It is unquestionably on of the most vibrant celebrations of the year and if you happen to be in town, stop by to see what all the hype is about.
