After being cancelled by Hurricane Sandy last year, the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade ran a Kickstarter campaign and raised $55,000 to make up for reduced sponsorship. And despite the threat of rain a huge crowd came to Sixth Avenue to participate and watch. Featured in the video are Superior Concept Monsters (The giant skeletal puppets that lead the parade), The Edward Morgan Ballet, The Hungry March Band, and Sir Turkey.
Also on Spring Street. Could be Mark Jenkins but I don’t think so. It is not as meticulously done as his work.
I got there at 5 to mingled in the set-up area and avoid being trapped in the incredibly crowded pen for the non-organizational participants. I exited at 4th Street around 8 when my camera’s battery was dead. If I remember right the pen is not even opened until 9, it is absolute hell if you are in an elaborate costume.
