Don't Miss Out On A Thing This Halloween

It’s that time of year! Halloween is upon us and festivities are all around.  We have sifted through the offerings and created a handy location by location guide. Some events might just be worth travelling that little bit further for, especially since school is closed next week so do read to the end for the ‘Further Afield’ section!

 

East Village

 

Day of the Dead — East Village

Saturday, October 26–Sunday, October 27

Day of the Dead—or Día de los Muertos in Spanish—is observed by many Hispanic cultures, and perhaps more popular than ever thanks to the Pixar movie Coco. While the festival has no relation to Halloween, it happens at the same time of year and can appear similar to the untrained eye; skulls, colorful outfits, and parades abound. Mano a Mano throws one of the best Day of the Dead events in NYC at St. Mark's Church in the East Village. The two-day festival includes a marketplace with Mexican food and wares, live music, dance acts, paper craft workshops, and a communal altar, where you can place photos in memory of your loved ones.
