WELCOME to our 40th Anniversary Parade: REVIVAL! Thank you all for coming! A wonderful NYC night!
This year’s Parade was on
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2013 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!
Last year the Parade was the first event cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy. This year will be the Hallelujah Halloween REVIVAL! Find out more about the theme here.
HONORING NY’s SUPERHEROS
And we will also honor SUPERHEROES — the REAL ones — those folks who stepped up to help the city out of that disaster and the NewYork-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!
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!
