Village Halloween Parade
October 31, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Join the fun on Sixth Avenue from Spring St. to 16th St. as the 41st Annual Village Halloween Parade kicks off.
The inspiration for this year’s theme, “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” came from the architecture and people of New York City. The parade pays tribute to the parks, the urban development and the true spirit of New York, which is the community of people. Individuals from all walks of life will come together on this night to celebrate the diversity, love and joy of New York.
Started by Greenwich Village mask maker and puppeteer Ralph Lee in 1974, the Parade began as a walk from house to house in his neighborhood for his children and their friends. After the second year of this local promenade, Theater for the New City stepped in and produced the event on a larger scale as part of their City in the Streets program. Today the Parade is the largest celebration of its kind in the world and has been picked by Festivals International as “The Best Event in the World” for October 31.
