On October 30 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Meatpacking Business Improvement District will be hosting Treats in the Streets, a Halloween celebration in the district’s plaza and open streets. Businesses in the area such as Amy’s Bread, Belstaff, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Common Ground Bar will offer free candy for trick-or-treaters. Neighborhood Goods will offer in-store dog and owner portraits and sell mini pumpkin-spiced beignets with house caramel. The Meeting Point Gallery is hosting a storytime with the New York Public Library at 11am. At Serafina Meatpacking, special complimentary ravioli flavored with pumpkin, Amaretto cookie, or Parmigiano will be served. For adults, Alice + Olivia and the Gansevoort Hotel will feature alcoholic beverages, and Blue Point will be handing out samples of beer in 14th Street Park with a beautiful pumpkin patch perfect for Instagramming.

Throughout the day, activities such as pumpkin decorating, pumpkin ring toss, pumpkin tic-tac-toe, and corn hole will be available in the streets. At noon, there will be a live music performance and Drag Queen Story Hour at Gansevoort Plaza. At 2 p.m. the Meatpacking District will host its 3rd Annual Doggie Costume Contest on Little W. 12th Street. The winner of the contest will receive an overnight stay at the dog-friendly Gansevoort Hotel. If you’re wearing a costume, be sure to check out the Artists & Fleas market for their annual costume contest. All events are open to the public with no reservations or tickets required.
