Halloween Weekend Things To Do in NYC: Parades, Parties, Ice Skating Returns, and More

Here's something positively eerie—our Halloween calendar this year is almost as jam-packed as last year. Some events, like BAMBoo, have gone virtual, but many of our favorites are back live and in-person, including the Brooklyn Heights Halloween Parade and DUMBOween. As you look toward your weekend plans, keep in mind these safety guidelines released by the governor.

If you're skipping trick-or-treating, we've rounded up 15 fabulous alternatives to celebrate and a curated list of drive-thru Halloween attractions in the tri-state. We've even got intel on a thrilling dino drive-thru just across the bridge. Netflix has created a magical way to haunt your home this year (no scary movie required). Little ones can enjoy our not-so-scary picks for preschoolers, and our Halloween Fun Guide is scarily stocked with even more holiday happenings.

Before stepping out, take note: While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and maintaining social distancing. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our Event Calendar to find something else to do.
