Greenwich Village Flooded By Ghouls and Goblins
A rainy night did not stop revelers from celebrating at Greenwich Village’s annual Halloween parade. Costumed people roamed the downtown area all day, but the action reached a crescendo with a procession of floats down Sixth Avenue. Though there were less floats than in past years, it was earlier rumored that only three would appear. Due to a “Daily News” article
that reported only 3 floats had registered by October 8th local businesses became involved
and in the end there were 12 floats involved in the parade.
Though the parade goers were drenched in a downpour and stuck in a flood of water in the city streets, the party continued. Notable costumes included several Lady Gagas, Ghostbusters and “piano cats
.” As always, witch, ghost and demon costumes were also prevalent.
The parade has been a fixture in the community for years and has become an instant tradition for city dwellers and bridge-and-tunnel crowds alike. It is clear that this year’s Halloween parade was a success despite the weather, but we can hope for clearer skies next year.
