TOP LIVE EVENTS
Halloween is one of those festivals that is embraced in the United
States like nowhere else in the world; often to the bewilderment of
international visitors the whole country joins in the dressing up and
scary themed partying process from school and college students right
up to workplaces and government buildings across the nation.
Nowhere is this more apparent than in New York City, where the now famous Village Halloween Parade in Greenwich Village has been taking place for over 40 years and is joined annually by thousands of participants watched along the parade route by many thousands more.
The New York Village Halloween parade gets underway at 7pm and last
for around 4 hours in total, usually drawing to a close around 11pm.
The parade route is very straightforward, it travels straight up Sixth Avenue, from Spring Street towards the south up to 16th Street.
There is live TV coverage being provided of the Halloween parade
this year by local cable channel NY1. For Time Warner Cable subscribers
this will also be available as a live online stream, you will need your
TWC ID to be able to log in and watch:

New York is always expensive, and unfortunately November, and around Halloween in particular, is one of the more popular times for visitors, so you are going to be looking at a pricey stay wherever you opt for, although you can save a little by heading out from Manhattan to Jersey City or maybe Queens.
You can check availability and make reservations for local hotels here.
