    I bet you never thought that New York City could celebrate Halloween like a small town, did you? Well, think again!

    Every year, residents of the Village neighborhood of New York gather in their Halloween costumes and parade down 6th Avenue. The parade takes a few hours, and draws huge crowds every year.

    The best part is, if you don’t want to line up to watch the parade, you can just take part in it! Anyone wearing a costume who shows up to the beginning of the parade route is eligible to enter. After the parade, take in a few of New York’s hottest bars and nightclubs to round out the evening.
