One of our favorite annual Halloween traditions in NYC, the Village Halloween Parade, returns for its 46th edition on Thursday, October 31, 2019, and this year's theme has been announced: "Wild Thing!" As usual, participation is open only to people in costume, who can line up from 6:30-8:30 PM on 6th Avenue at Canal St. The parade itself runs from 7 PM-10:30 PM along 6th Ave, from Spring St to 16th St.

VIP options are available for those who want to skip the line to march, starting at $25 to gain entrance to a "Wild Thing! section" (themed costume required) and going up to $600 for "VIP Seating - Four Director's Chairs in the VIP Viewing Area."

Now that Webster Hall has reopened after renovations, the official Halloween Parade afterparty, Webster Hell, is back after a two year hiatus. Afterparty tickets are on sale now.

Check out pictures from the 2018 edition of the parade in the gallery above, and stay tuned for more 2019 Halloween events.
