Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn and CB2 District Manager Bob Gormley To lead the 16th 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 16th 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 for the parade will be:

  • New York City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn
  • Community Board 2 District Manager Bob Gormley

Also expected to attend are Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer and Assemblywoman Deborah Glick

WHEN: Tuesday, October 31, 2006; parade starts at 3:30 pm sharp; 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 City of New York Parks and Recreation, Village Alliance and NoHo NY Business Improvement Districts, Scholastic, Washington Square Association, McDonald’s of Broadway, McBurney YMCA, UPS, & the Greenwich Village Chelsea Chamber of Commerce.
