That is my costume from last year in the picture if you can’t tell because it’s literally just cat ears. I went as a cliché. I’ll probably do it again this year because I’m too broke for a real costume and I don’t like Halloween.
Because Halloween is never just one day of celebrating, I have decided to put together a post of all of the events you can attend in the city over the several days that are informally considered Halloween.
Haunted Beer Garden @ Loreley Beer Garden – Oct. 21-31
Pumpkin Keg Tapping @ Loreley Beer Garden – Oct. 27th
Masquerade Ball @ Stage 48 – Oct. 28 – Tickets $75
DJ Khaled Presents: Highline House of Horrors @ Highline Ballroom – Oct. 28 – Tickets $45-$5,000 (that is not a joke)
Boo at the Zoo @ Bronx Zoo – Oct. 1-30
New York Haunted Hayride @ Randall’s Island – Oct. 20-31
Harvest Fest @ Meatpacking District – Oct. 29th 11am-4pm
43rd Annual Village Halloween Parade @ Spring Street & 6th Ave (goes up 6th Ave) – Oct. 31st 6pm-9pm (you can walk in this parade if you wear a costume)
Brooklyn Bazaar Halloween @ Brooklyn Bazaar – Oct. 31
And, of course, because Christmas now starts before Halloween, the Bryant Park Winter Village opens on Oct. 29th.
There are plenty more events around the city. These are just a select few I have found on the interweb (get it? Halloween. Web. Spiders. I’m funny).
