Halloween Events in the City that Never Sleeps!

The Bash

Living in New York City, we reap the benefits of always having fun activities to do, especially on Halloween! All throughout the NYC area, there are many types of spooky events to attend with your friends and family. Here are some ideas!

If you are looking to dress up while also getting your steps in, there are many options for that. This year is New York’s 50th annual Village Halloween parade starting at 6:30pm. It’s completely free and all you have to do is dress up in costume. It can get pretty packed though, so make sure to head on line at Sixth Avenue and Canal Street early! Another beautiful event is The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze in Hudson Valley. With over 7,000 jack o’ lanterns, music, and a circus sideshow, you’re certain to have a memorable Halloween experience! 

An iconic activity during Halloween is haunted houses. Luckily, there are many frightful attractions throughout the city. Noteworthy ones include Blood Manor, TerrorVision, and A Haunting in Hollis! Be sure to get your tickets ahead of time before they sell out! And we can’t forget about the puppies. For the past 25 years, the Great PUPkin Dog Costume Contest has taken place in Fort Greene. If you love art and design, this is a perfect opportunity for you to get creative and create an awesome costume for your dog!

In a city that never sleeps, Halloween in New York City is a celebration like no other, offering an array of thrilling activities for everyone to enjoy. Whether you want a chilling scare or a playful event, this city has something for everyone!
