NYC Halloween Parade 2011 @ New York, NY – 10.31.11

November 1, 2011 | Other Photography

I never experienced the NYC Village Halloween Parade before so I wanted to check it out. I also didn’t know I could have went early to get a pass to shoot it? I’ll know that next time instead of sitting by the gate for an hour and half for the parade to start.

As soon as I got out of the PATH entrance on 9th street, the streets were filled with people. Disoriented on where I was, I headed up by accidentally thinking I was going down. I found an open spot so decided to stay and tough it out instead of finding a spot below 9th. The parade FINALLY showed up around 7:45pm at 11th street. I was testing my patience of having to hear annoying people around me and the cold as well. There’s just no way I could do this for New Year’s Eve.

Once the parade hit, blocks of themes came down the street and sometimes just random people. The parade had it all: superheroes, freaks, weirdos, marching bands, random floats, a dead Gaddafi, a dead Osama, skeleton puppets, A chewbecca, zombies, sluts, Occupy Wall street, Occupy Wall Street spoofs like Occupy Sesame Street/Elm St/Hell and many other things.

It was a great time taking pictures, and I did so for an hour or so. I eventually cut out early when the parade seemed to be dying down. I just didn’t want to get stuck in the mass exodus of people getting on the trains to get home.
