There are 2 (TWO) Calendar listings below on this page. First, a list of events mostly taking place in local parks followed by a calendar of other Halloween-related happenings.

Scroll-Down

Dear Folks, please be sure to check on the respective links for the events listed on this page for any last minute changes or cancellations.

Entering into its 44th celebration is the Annual Halloween Parade, taking place from Spring St to 16th Street along 6th Avenue. Head on down and see all the ghouls and goblins, folks and puppets, musical performances and so much more!

Here’s our own full video of the parade from 2005. We’d spent hours holding on to our spot at the barricades for the parade to begin. Was it worth it? YUP!!!

It’s a huge attraction with more than 2 million spectators and tens of thousands of participants. “It’s the largest public participatory event in the greatest city in the world.”

This Year’s theme is ‘Cabinet of Curiosities: An Imaginary Menagerie’

So, if you show up in a costume then you’re welcomed to join the parade. For ONLY those in costume is on 6th Avenue at Canal Street between 6:30 pm and 8:30 pm. Alert! ONLY enter the line-up on 6th Ave. at Canal Street!

It then heads north to 16th Street and 6th Avenue. So show up in your costume and be ready to walk along in front of thousands upon thousands of spectators.

The Parade is expected to last from 7:00 pm to 10:30 pm and will be telecast through Cable NY1 News from 7:30 – 9:30 pm. It takes about 2 hours or more for the parade to reach the end.

BTW, have a look at the many photos taken during our visit to Van Cortlandt Manor’s Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze.
