19th Annual Greenwich Village Children’s Halloween Parade

WHAT: New York University and Manhattan Community Board 2 will host hundreds of children, moms, and dads at the 19th Annual Greenwich Village Children’s Halloween Parade. Led by the Lesbian and Gay Big Apple Corps. Marching Band, children and families will march around Washington Square Park. Following the parade, the children will be treated to candy, face-painting, rides and live entertainment, including a special performance by the Off-Broadway children’s smash hit, The Gazillion Bubble Show.

The Grand Marshals for the parade will be:

  • Jo Hamilton, Chair of Community Board 2
  • Rebecca Ferguson, Washington Square Park and Union Square Park Administrator,
  • Mia Haas, daughter of William Haas, NYU’s Director of Planning

WHEN: Saturday, October 31, 2009; marchers start gathering at 1:00pm; parade begins at 1:15pm; festivities end at 4:00pm

WHERE: The parade assembles along Washington Square North, near the Arch and ends at LaGuardia between Washington Square South and West 3rd Street where various activities await the children.

The parade provides very good, cute, daylight shots of kids in costumes parading around the park accompanied by parents, and is a good complement for coverage of the adult parade.

The afternoon will conclude with Washington Square Park performances by The Gazillion Bubble Show (approx. 1:45 p.m.) and NYU students- including NYU music groups, cheerleaders, and dance teams-followed by the distribution of treats

The 19th Annual NYU and CB2 Parade is sponsored by: The Villager Newspaper, TD Bank, The Port Authority of NY & NJ, Lucille Lortel Theatre, Tio Pepe, Washington Square Hotel, NYU Family Care, Burrito Loco, McDonald’s, Las Ramblas, Morton Williams, Bleecker Area Merchants’ and Residents’ Association, Con Edison, Washington Square Association, Bedford Barrow Commerce Block Association, NOHO NY BID, Kmart, Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, Think Coffee, Blind Tiger Ale House, Bob and Elaine Schneider, The Village Alliance, Collins Building Services Inc., YMCA, NYU Administrative Management Council, and NYU Book Centers.
