March, watch or tune in to the 45th annual Greenwich Village Halloween Parade! You can only march if you are in costume, but if you prefer to just watch, pick a spot along 6th Avenue north of Spring Street to 16th Street where the parade will come through from between 7:00pm to 10:30pm or tune in to the live television coverage on NY 1 from 8:00 pm to 9:30pm. The Greenwich Village Halloween Parade was started in 1974 by Westbeth Artist Housing resident artist and puppeteer Ralph Lee. Since then, the parade has grown to become the largest event of its kind, attracting over two million spectators and 60,000 participants!
