The last time I did any trick-or-treating was when I was a sophomore in high school, 10 years ago. It’s interesting (for me at least) to hear college friends preparing for Halloween parties and what their costumes will be. I thought this article from Mashable by Chris Wild  was too cute not to share. Apparently there is a Halloween Parade in New York City.. who knew?!

“The New York Village Halloween parade is America’s only nighttime parade. The parade route stretches for more than a mile, up Manhattan’s Sixth Avenue.

In addition to elaborate costumes, the event features giant puppets manipulated by several puppeteers and bands. Each year, parade themes draw upon extensive research into the symbolic language and meanings underlying celebrations and rituals.

Today the event sees around 2 million spectators, plus over 60,000 costumed participants. The 2014 grand marshall is actor and TV personality Whoopi Goldberg”

The pictures posted in the article are great!
