WELCOME to our 41st Anniversary Parade!
The 2014 41st Annual Parade will be on
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2014 at 7 p.m.
Only those in costume are welcome to join…
hundreds of PUPPETS, 53 BANDS of Different Types of Music, DANCERS and ARTISTS, and thousands of other New Yorkers in costumes of their own creation in
…the nation’s most wildly creative public participatory event in the greatest city in the world!
Line-up for 2014!
For ONLY those in costume is on 6th Avenue South of Spring Street and North of Canal between 6:30pm and 8:30pm.
Alert! ONLY enter the line-up on 6th Ave. from the East and South between Canal and Spring!
The 2013 Theme was REVIVAL!
In 2012 the Parade was the first event cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy. Last year, 2013, our theme was Hallelujah Halloween REVIVAL! Find out more about the theme here.
HONORING New York’s SUPERHEROS…
The REAL ones — those folks who stepped up to help the city out of that disaster and the New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center Transplant Team and Jeff Bratcher—longtime Parade volunteer—who donated a kidney to the Parade Director’s son; and all those who have volunteered to marshal and animate giant puppets throughout the Parade’s long history and kept this humble arts organization going! This float was made possible by Rubi’s Costumes!
And THEN, all of YOU who helped save the Parade through our Kickstarter last year! Especially those who donated prizes! Webster Hall, Raya Brass Band, Thriller NY, Temptress, and Photographers Joe Di Maggio, Kay Kenny, and Adi Ashenknazi, Robert Dea, Donal Lag, and Caryn Lee Greca.
