Manhattan Halloween Parties - Manhattan NYC
With only six days to go before Halloween, we decided to do a round up of some of the Halloween parties planned in Manhattan.
The weather on Friday and Saturday evenings preceding Halloween this year is expected to be about ten degrees warmer than usual - meaning in the 60's during the day and in the 50's at nigh in Manhattan. No rain is expected on either of the two weekend nights.
* The Village Halloween Parade starts at 7 pm at Spring Street and 6th Avenue and marches north to 16th Street on Tuesday, October 31st. It lasts in the neighborhood of three to four hours with the official end time at 10.30 pm. We've heard that there are over 30 musical groups and an innumerable showing of creative costumes.
The following is a short list of Manhattan Halloween parties at local bars, restaurants and arts and public venues will be added over time. In most cases we suggest that you call ahead and rsvp a spot to be sure you get in.
