Get ready for a superfun Halloween in our community with the Park Slope Civic Council’s Halloween Children’s Parade! “Gods, Goddesses, and Superheroes” is the theme for this year’s event, and there’ll be plenty of them strolling through the streets of the Slope in the afternoon and into the evening.
The Halloween Parade is set for
Wednesday, Oct. 31, 6:30 p.m. (rain or shine)
starting point: 14th Street and Seventh Avenue
Leading the revelry are two carefully driven ambulances, loaded with a cornucopia of candies that the emergency technicians and dedicated volunteers hand out by the bagful. Civic Council trustees and elected officials come next, followed by the real delights of the evening — giant puppets made over the years under the direction of the Puppeteers Cooperative, and dozens of volunteers from Park Slope Parents and local schoolchildren. Next, the costumed denizens of Park Slope, one of the most creative communities in New York City, never cease to amaze the crowd. Mysterious roller-skating wraiths, terrific bands, and other unexpected surprises complete the experience, which ends at the Old Stone House and Washington Park on Fifth Avenue between Third and Fourth Streets.
Whether you’re a parade volunteer, a participant, or a spectator, the Halloween Parade is beloved and memorable annual event. If you’re interested in volunteering, e-mail us at email@example.com.
