Oct 31 falls on a Thursday in 2019, which means that Halloween pretty much lasts for a full week. The upshot? There's going to be a whole lot of trick or treating in NYC this year.

RECOMMENDED: Halloween for kids in NYC

We have a list of the most amazing trick or treating NYC families love most, from the Halloween Parade at Industry City to a wildly entertaining evening at the American Museum of Natural History. These and other Halloween events for kids will make the holiday memorable. 

You can keep the spirit going between events by teaching your little goblins the best Halloween songs for kids. And once it's time to pack it in, you can go home, sort through the bounty of sweets (remember, parents get to levy a candy tax and keep what they see fit), and watch one of these scary movies for kids. Getting spooked is more fun when you're snuggling with your family.
