An NYC Village Halloween Parade
Oh boy, it's that time of year again that has found itself around again according to that Gregorian calendar on the wall. The end of summer and the beginning of the holy holiday season. And with that holy holiday season finds itself Halloween, All Saints Day, All Hallows Eve, The Day of the Dead,when the dead rise, a great excuse to dress however one wants and not care about it, or whatever one would want to call that scary, spooky, astrological, mystical, occult, witchcraft of a day. If only every day could be Halloween, maybe. And so with that holiday holidaying day seems to come a slew of Halloween events and parties and beyond to go along with it. And I have found myself blah blaghing about that holiday on this blog before in times past. And so some of those events to be found in that city of New York in this year of 2010 A.D. are as follows:
And so that NYC Village Halloween Parade is happening again this year. That seemingly end all to be all of parades to be found in that city of New York with seemingly a bazillion puppets, marching bands, dancers, performers and more.
