The 2014 NYC Halloween Parade runs up 6th Avenue again today (October 31st), going from Spring Street to just past 16th-18th Street.
It runs from 7pm-11pm and is one of the biggest parades in New York City. Anyone can join as long as you are in costume. Learn more about how to participate at www.halloween-nyc.com/participate.php.
The Grand Marshall this year is Whoopi Goldberg. There will be hundreds of Giant Puppets, 50 bands representing music from everywhere and dancers of all styles.
If you can’t attend or participate in the parade you can always watch it on tv (NY1 from 8pm-9:30pm).
The Parade typically draws more than 50,000 costumed participants and millions of viewers live and on tv.
If you haven’t been, it’s a wild event.
