Billed as the most outrageous Halloween event in the world, the Village Halloween Parade is one of New York's most colourful parties. Towering papier-mâché puppets are a regular feature, as are stilt-walkers, jugglers, breakdancers and around two million onlookers. With more than 50,000 scarily-clad participants, the celebration of spooks and ghouls takes place in Greenwich Village along 6th Ave from Spring Street to 22nd Street. Every year it conjures up an obscure theme which dictates the style of dress and participants go to town on creating the most outrageous and eccentric costumes that they can possibly dream up. This is a time to let your imagination run wild through the streets of New York. The party will take place on October 31st. For more information, click here.
