NYC Village Halloween Parade: See photos from the 43rd annual event

New Yorkers decked out in Halloween costumes filled the streets of downtown Manhattan for the 43rd annual Village Halloween Parade on Monday night.

This year's theme was Reverie, the organizers said, inviting everyone "to recreate their waking dreams." While costumes didn't have to match the theme, everyone who participated in the parade had to be in costume.
