Halloween Parade In NYC: They Only Come Out at Night

2 million spectators. Thousands of marchers, dressed as everything you could possibly come up with- zombies, rescued Chilean miners, skeletons. The only major parade in the country held at night - kicking off at 8pm in Soho, going up a very dark 6th Avenue in Greenwich Village and ending up in Chelsea. Cut back several blocks this year for the city to save on police overtime. Called "one of the 100 things to do before you die" and one of the top events of the year. Traffic congestion, barricaded sidewalks, subway trains full of weird creatures. It was the 38th edition of the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, once a small neighborhood event that went along several blocks in the Village, now one of the biggest parades in the city.
