New York Halloween Overview

There isn’t one prevailing opinion when it comes to Halloween’s history. One group of scholars claims that All Hallows’ Eve started as a pagan ritual celebrating the dead. The other school of thought is that October’s weirdest holiday was once a Christian feast day, modeled after similar events in Europe.

Regardless of which narrative is more accurate, Halloween has undeniably become one of the biggest party days on the worldwide calendar. All Hallows’ Eve has fused both cultural and literary symbols such as monsters, pumpkins, scarecrows, and ghosts to create a holiday unlike any other, with metropolises like New York City pulling out all the stops on October 31st.

Halloween in New York City 2015 is home to a scary good amount of Halloween parties like the spooky Village Halloween Parade. There, fifty thousand costumed denizens do the Monster Mash to the music of live bands as they watch a procession of giant puppets and floats.

Sexy teachers and (fake) blood-stained Dexters hit up Halloween celebrations such as the Monster Ball Halloween Party, where devilishly-talented DJs spin EDM, hip-hop, and R&B, making sure ghouls and gals of all kinds keep their freaky feet moving on the dance floor.

No one wants fruit in their trick-or-treat bag, but with its endless amount of Halloween parties, The Big Apple is among the best places in the world to celebrate All Hallows’ Eve in 2015.
