Event Hints:

  • Dress Up: This is a very festive New York parade. Get into the spirit and dress up, and you can join all of the other costumed parader supporters who will be walking in the parade along Sixth Avenue.
  • Don't Park Near Sixth Avenue: Your best bet for getting to the Halloween NYC Parade is to park near a subway station that can get you closer to Sixth Avenue in Greenwich Village. Parts of the village area are closed off and pedestrian traffic during this evening is an absolute nightmare.
  • Be Ready For a Long Night: The Halloween NYC Parade is fun, but make sure you have for plan for the night and after the event. There will be a lot of people in the area, so make sure to bring water as it will most likely be very hot.
