The Other Halloween Parade: 21st Annual Greenwich Village Children’s Halloween Parade

October 24, 2011
N-80, 2011-12



New York University and Manhattan Community Board 2 will host hundreds of children, moms, and dads at the 21st Annual Greenwich Village Children’s Halloween Parade.  Led by the Soul Tigers 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 NYC based children’s music band, Shira and Friends.

The Grand Marshals for the parade have been selected for their commitment and service to the Greenwich Village community:

·         Honi Klein, former Executive Director of the Village Alliance Business Improvement District

·         Brandon del Pozo, Deputy Inspector of the NYPD’s 6th Precinct

·         Maria Skouras, former Senior Policy Analyst of NYU’s Office of Government and Community Affairs



Monday, October 31, 2011; parade starts at 3:30 pm; marchers start gathering at 3:00 pm; festivities end at 6:00 pm



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. Good complement for coverage of the adult parade.

Shira and Friends will perform followed by NYU students– including NYU music groups, and cheerleaders– and assist with distributing treats.  

The 21st Annual NYU and CB2 Parade is sponsored by: The Villager Newspaper, Lucille Lortel Theatre, Washington Square Hotel, NYU Family Care, McDonald's, Morton Williams, Con Edison, Washington Square Association, Bedford Barrow Commerce Block Association, NOHO NY BID, Kmart, Bob and Elaine Schneider, The Village Alliance, McBurney YMCA, Collins Building Services Inc., Murphy & Gonzalez, Sky Management Corporation, M&M Sanitation Corporation, NYU Parenting Club/Office of Alumni Relations, NYU Administrative Management Council, and NYU Bookstores.
