Although Halloween officially takes place on Monday, NYC's weekend is loaded with spooktacular fun for the kids. Many of our favorite Halloween celebrations are taking place this weekend, including costume parades, Halloween at the Seaport, a Haunted Halloween Carnival in Park Slope, the return of LC Trick-or-Treat, and more. We also have details on day-of Halloween events, including two Brooklyn favorites: BAM's block party and Halloween 313 in Fort Greene. Don't forget: you can donate all your leftover candy (and whatever you can pry away from your kids) to military members and veterans, needy kids, and more feel-good causes.
Other weekend fun includes two seasonal openings: the Winter Village at Bryant Park and the LeFrak Center's ice skating rinks, plus a three-day celebration honoring Day of the Dead at St. Mark's Church. Looking ahead to that next big holiday? Book your Thanksgiving dinner at these NYC restaurants, or sign up to volunteer as a family with these local charities. Get a jump start on holiday shopping (or just stock up on diapers and paper towels like we do!) by entering our $100 Target gift card giveaway.
Need a break from planning your kid's costume, and well, everything else? Consider these nearby getaways for burned out NYC parents.
We had a tough time narrowing down our top picks for this weekend, so be sure to check out our Event Calendar and Halloween Guide for even more ideas.
Keep an eye out for our November GoList coming soon, too!
