It’s a COSTUME and a MOVE!!!
Check out Jon Batiste’s video for his Grammy Award winning song Freedom!

What is the move and the moment that let’s you forget the world and all its troubles and just sets you FREE? Bring it! To the Parade!

We are encouraging glittery costumes, your best dance moves and anything that allows you to feel light, joyful, free and colorful!

You can join a Special Section of the Parade and dance along with The Brooklyn United Marching Band as they play Freedom! along the route or just join in the open participation part of the Parade!

However you do it! Feel the Joy and Freedom of expression in one of New York’s most iconic and wildly creative events!

“Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality.”

Hallelujah Halloween!
