Village Halloween Parade still cancelled, but the Lower East Side & Webster Hall reschedule celebrations

Wayne Coyne hands out candy (more)
Halloween

Despite the mayor’s perhaps optimistic statement about rescheduling the big NYC Halloween Parade that was cancelled due to Sandy, there has been no update since November 3rd when the Village Parade organizers posted the following:

The Mayor’s Office has told us that the event is cancelled and they cannot give us a reschedule date any time in the foreseeable future. As you know the Marathon was also canceled. We will keep you updated if anything changes for the future!

We thank you all for the incredible support you have given us during these last very trying and exhausting days!

The Spirit of the Parade is YOUR Spirit –and YOU are all joyful, energetic, inspired, and creative folks!

Hallelujah Halloween!

Artistic and Producing Director

I think we can all accept by now that the next Halloween parade should be and will be on October 31, 2013. That said, kids on the Lower East Side will have a second chance to celebrate the holiday. The NY Post reports, “about 40 merchants in the neighborhood have agreed to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters Saturday, according to the scary fun house “Killers: A Nightmare Haunted House.”” Bowery Boogie says kids in the LES will be celebrating Friday afternoon too. On October 31st, those kids were in the dark.

Webster Hall, home of one of the biggest annual Halloween parties in the city, has also rescheduled their annual event which will now take place this Saturday (11/10), The Virgin Sacrifice included…

Throughout the evening, guests witness a series of mind-blowing spectacles. At the stroke of Midnight, with flames blazing, an innocent virgin is picked from the crowd. Stripped of her clothing and dignity, the crowd watches as she is ritualistically sacrificed on a massive pentagram hung 40 feet in the air.

The best costume of the night will win $5000.
