RAIN DATE: Nov. 1st

10:30 am - Parade & Concert
Spend Halloween with Princess Katie & Racer Steve who are leading the children's Halloween parade down Greenwich Ave and then end up at Washington Market Park where they'll perform a more cool, less creepy concert!
This year’s Washington Market Park parade will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Halloween. The festivities will include a live band and pony rides, and the parade will be led by Princess Katie and Racer Steve, a small children’s band. The Friends of Washington Market Park have a parade permit for Greenwich St. between the southern side of Greenwich and North Moore Sts.

The main entrance of the park at Duane St. is currently closed due to the construction of a new comfort station, so the children will march down Greenwich St. into the temporary park entrance at Reade St. The staff at Zucker’s Bagels will be waiting for them when they’re done marching, dressed up and giving away candy bags and mini chocolate bagels. The folks at Tribeca Treats at 94 Reade St. will also be giving out candy, and the Cosmopolitan Cafe on W. Broadway is holding a free apple festival from 2 p.m. until dark, where kids can enjoy candy apples and apple cider donuts, learn to press apples with a 150-year-old press, and go apple bobbing.
