With a little more than two weeks to go before Halloween, we decided to do a round up of some of the Halloween parties planned in Manhattan.
The weather around Halloween is usually about 60 during the day time and 46 degrees at night. It's too early to tell what the precipitation will be the preceding weekend as well as on Halloween, but we provide weather updates each Friday.
The 46th Annual Village Halloween Parade NYC starts at 7 pm at Spring Street and 6th Avenue and marches north to 16th Street on Thursday, October 31st. It runs through the West Village neighborhood for three to four hours with the official end time at 10.30 pm. We've heard that there are over 35 bands 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.
