This is world's most wildly creative public participatory event. Aside from the dancers, artists, and bands, thousands of New Yorkers dressed in their most ingenious costumes participate in the celebration and walk along the streets in Greenwich Village of Lower Manhattan.
You'll be surprised how inventive and thought-out these costumes are. Literary characters, creepy creatures of all kinds, historic personalities... anything you can imagine! Every year has its theme, but any costume is welcome. A costume is a must if you want to join the walk. But if you just want to observe you don't need to dress up, so grab your friends and find a spot with a nice view.
