NYC Halloween Parade
October 31, 2011 by staff
More than 50,000 costumed participants join with puppets, dancers, bands and more than 50. The event was recently added to the “100 Things to do before you die” list and is one of the largest public celebrations in the United States.
Wall St. zombies, vampires, corporate and working-class superheroes are also joining in the celebrations as part of the “Occupy” movement “Occupy Halloween.” Artists have been working out at a secret location in DUMBO, Brooklyn puppets and costumes to join the parade.
The parade route will begin at Sixth Avenue and San spring and end on 16th Street
The Halloween parade is 7 pm-10: 30 pm Restaurants and bars along the route are expected to be full, so that groups of visitors may want to make reservations to avoid a long wait.
Those who see us live must appear at least an hour early to get a good spot along the route. Between Bleecker Street and 14 are usually the busiest, so those who can not appear a few hours before trying to get a seat at the beginning or end of the route. The Village Halloween Parade’s official website is recommended to take the subway and public transportation to the event. Visit the MTA to find events in the metro stops along the route.
Anyone in costume is welcome to join the parade, so they put together a last minute costume line on Sixth Avenue. south of Spring Street and north of Canal 18:30 to 20:30
The theme this year is “the ego of the viewer.” The eyeballs are projected onto a giant installation leading the parade.
For New York who want a less chaotic parade, which will be broadcast live on WPIX 11 from 7-10 pm and from 8-9:30 pm NY 1
This tradition of New York began in 1973 when puppeteer Ralph Lee marched his creation around your neighborhood for children and friends. New York Theatre took over in the third year the event occurs on a larger scale and spread over streets of Greenwich. A year later, the parade became a nonprofit organization and grew each year with more media coverage. Now in its 39th year, which was a neighborhood event attracts crowds of more than 2 million participants and spectators.
