The spirit of Halloween isn't dead—it's dangling off the side of the Jefferson Market Library Tower.
On Halloween night, from 7pm to 10pm, a giant, sparkly spider will be hanging off the tower as it does each year during the Village Halloween Parade. The parade is canceled this year, but the spider will still make an appearance.While the parade is canceled, organizers are bringing a mini-parade to those of us at home. At noon on Saturday, halloween-nyc.com will stream the 15-minute baby parade featuring toy-sized puppets and tiny floats that'll pass by NYC's iconic buildings. The grand marshal is "Pinocchio" and actor Donald Corren will provide live commentary set to music by On The Lam Band.
There's also a special "tricky treat" organizers are planning in the Village that is under special wraps until it happens.
Fleming says the event "will happen on Halloween night and it will be Covid safe! Keep tuned for hints…but just like the child who comes to your door on Halloween, you won’t know who it is or what it is till you see it! BOO!"
Make sure to check the parade's social media to keep on top of when and where it'll take place.
