Large Crowds Gather to Watch New York's Village Halloween Parade

The 49th annual Village Halloween Parade returned to New York City on Monday evening, October 31, bringing music, dance and a mix of spooky and colorful costumes to crowds lining Sixth Avenue.

The parade, led by the Brooklyn United Marching Band on grand marshal float, set off up Sixth Avenue from Canal Street, through SoHo and into Greenwich Village, and officially ended at the corner of West 15th Street.

New York resident Debora Domass, who captured this footage as she and friends watched the parade from a rooftop in SoHo, said it was another welcome reminder that the city was getting back on its feet after the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This Halloween parade was so fun and a great reminder that New York is not dead – despite all the undeads in the parade,” she joked. Credit: Debora Domass via Storyful
