The Village Halloween Parade

This parade is an imaginative and eerie procession that ranks among the top Halloween events in Greenwich Village, and is set to return this year on Halloween, which falls on Tuesday, October 31. Every year, a diverse array of over 50,000 participants wearing all sorts of Halloween costumes come together for an evening of spirited costume festivities that you simply can't afford to overlook.

This immersive art museum in Soho is currently offering a Halloween-themed takeover called “Haunted Hues,” available until November 1. Color Factory includes ball pits, confetti-filled areas, and much more!


This fall, this special experience will feature a pumpkin patch with a unique Color Factory twist, exciting giveaways, and freshly crafted seasonal treats. In addition, visitors have the option to heighten their visit with a brand-new scavenger hunt, allowing them to start a quest to uncover hidden monsters throughout the venue!



No matter what dates you book your seat tickets to New York for this October, you’ll be able to experience Oktoberfest! You don't need to make the journey to Germany to partake in this traditional autumn festival.


Fortunately, New York City hosts some of the finest Oktoberfest celebrations globally, filled with lively music, indulgent sausages, and a generous supply of both German and local beers to commemorate the season. The festivities this year include weeks-long waterfront parties and lively brewery gatherings.


The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze

The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze will feature an array of hand-carved jack o'lanterns arranged in intricate displays. In addition to perennial favorites such as the Statue of Liberty and the Pumpkin Planetarium, attendees can experience a circus sideshow, a jack o'lantern tribute to the Day of the Dead, and the pumpkin Ferris wheel in the Hudson Valley.
