The 40th Annual Village Halloween Parade is the biggest Halloween event in the world, and the Village Alliance wants to make sure you don’t get trapped behind a police barricade on the wrong side of the street all night in a last minute costume. Here’s all the information we could gather to ensure you have a scarily fantastic night in the Village:
The parade begins at 7pm and marches from Spring Street to 16th Street along 6th Avenue.
To watch on TV: The parade is broadcast live on WPIX Channel 11 from 7:30 to 9:00pm and on NY1 from 8 to 9:30pm.
To watch in person: Be sure to line up well before the parade starts. Once the police barricades go up, it is difficult to travel within the parade route, so make sure to meet up with your friends before 7pm.
To join in: Costumed revelers can enter the line-up on 6th Avenue from the east and south between Spring and Canal Streets from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Follow the crowd up 6th Avenue and show off your outrageous getup to the city.
The Official NYC Halloween Parade Afterparty is at Webster Hall. Tickets are available for $50. There will be amazing DJs, stunning spectacles, and a costume contest with a grang prize of $5,000.
Happy Halloween Villagers, and check out the video below for a sneak peek at all the revelry...
