Discover Halloween’s best at the 44th Annual Village Halloween Parade

There’s no better place to celebrate Halloween than New York City. For any who disagree, you haven’t seen the Village Halloween Parade.

A decades-old Halloween tradition, the Village Halloween Parade brings together Halloween-lovers of all ages for a costumed celebration. Anyone is eligible to participate—as long as you wear a costume. Organizers say they expect as many as 60,000 parade marchers, and more than a million spectators.

Break out your Stranger Things costume or even get inspired by this year’s theme, “Cabinet of Curiosities: An Imaginary Menagerie,” which is fully explained on the parade’s very own website.

For those who wish to participate, the corralling begins at 6:30 p.m. at Sixth Avenue and Canal. If you’re just wanting to watch the parade—which is promised to be full of dancers, artists, bands, and so much more—stake out a claim anywhere on Sixth Avenue from Spring Street to 16th Street.

Halloween still not your thing? Avoid Greenwich Village the evening of Halloween.
