Village Halloween Parade: See photos from the spooktacular event

One of the city’s favorite traditions brought thousands dressed in an array of costumes to Sixth Avenue Wednesday night.

The 45th annual Village Halloween Parade started at Spring Street and Sixth Avenue, with participants marching up the avenue to 16th Street. 

Costumes were scary, funny and political, and not all were in the parade. Scroll down to see photos from the parade.
