It was an honor to walk with Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill deBlasio as the Parade showed New York in its vibrance and resilience.   There was an atmosphere of LOVE not fear as we honored those who passed by embracing life in its fullest.

2017 Grand Marshal:  Anjelica !

The NYC Village Halloween Parade has always encouraged young and upcoming artists. This year, we are featuring one as Grand Marshal, recording artist, Anjelica. She will be riding on a float designed by Alexei Kazantsev, our first ever done in a New Orleans style.

The Official After Party is at Slake NYC

This Halloween, tens of thousands of costumed revelers will march through the belly of Manhattan in the biggest display of Halloween spirit on earth.  Afterwards, when the sun has set and the children have been tucked in, these revelers will converge in Midtown for the wildest party in the city: The Official Halloween Parade After Party at Slake NYC.  Each floor of the club will be totally transformed into a haunted mausoleum of shocking spectacles, bone rattling dance music and some of the most insane costumes you will ever see.
