NYU and Community Board 2 to Host the 15th 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 15th Annual Greenwich Village Children’s Halloween Parade. Led by the NYU Pipes and Drums bagpipe brigade, children and families will march around Washington Square Park. Following the parade, the children will be treated to candy, face-painting, and live entertainment. The Grand Marshals are Alicia Hurley, Director of NYU’s Office of Federal Policy and Acting Director of Government and Community Relations; Maria Derr, chair, Community Board 2; Ralph Musolino, Park & Recreation Manager, Manhattan, Districts 1 and 2.
  • WHEN: Monday, October 31, 2005; parade starts at 3:30 pm; marchers start gathering at 3:00 pm
  • WHERE: The parade assembles along Washington Square North, near the Arch.

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.

NYU students will perform for the kids - including NYU music groups, cheerleaders, and dance teams - and assist with distributing treats.

The parade is organized and conducted in cooperation with the the Village Alliance and NoHo NY Business Improvement Districts, Scholastic, Kinko’s, Associated Supermarket, Washington Square Association, McDonald’s of Broadway, UPS, the Washington Square Park Council, & the Greenwich Village Chelsea Chamber of Commerce.
