The Village Halloween Parade
Major bummer that the 47th Annual Village Halloween Parade has been canceled this year but there have been some mysterious mentions on their website for a potential COVID-safe pop-up…
“Halloween is all about Trick or Treat! So, we are going to do a trick that will be a treat! Like the Parade itself, which is a spontaneous gathering of people, our Halloween treat will be spontaneous, unannounced, and unique to our night Parade.
Our tricky treat will happen on Halloween night and it will be COVID-safe! Keep tuned for hints…but just like the child who comes to your door on Halloween, you won’t know who it is or what it is till you see it! BOO!”
And of course, Master Puppeteer Basil Twist’s Giant Spider will come out of the Tower of the Jefferson Market Library in the psychic heart of Greenwich Village on Halloween night. High above the street, she will practice social distancing of an arachnid sort! You may catch a glimpse of her, so, LOOK UP!
“So, Halloween lovers of New York, we are not abandoning you—the Spirit of Halloween will be in NYC—except this year, instead of YOU surprising US when you arrive to be in the Parade, WE will surprise YOU and keep the spirit alive.
And remember…in the spirit of Halloween—WEAR YOUR MASK!”
