There is truly a Halloween event for you, whatever it is that you may be looking for!

It is a Monday that the spookiest night of the year falls on – which translate into extended weekend parties and events happening. Take a look at some great events you may want to consider freaking out on.

A Haunted Masquerade: Crossroads

Into an enchanted, interactive haunted house will the industrial chic aesthetic of Long Island City’s Paper Factory Hotel be turned. Guests get to select the adventure that they want(hence the theme of crossroads), as they roam through the courtyard and the basement featuring four different spaces. They will be transported by theater and music performers from a dreary realm into a realm of drummers, burlesque and fire-breathers. If with the devil you would like to dance, costumes are necessary. You will be dancing to the music of DJs Anna Morgan, Adam Gibbons, David Hohme and more. The cost will be $30 and the event will run from 9p.m.-4a.m. The address in Long Island City is 37-06 36th St., paperfactoryhotel.com

Webster Hell

To this official afterparty of the Village Halloween Parade, only the ghosts with the most should attend, as all four floors are taken over of the “twisted mausoleum” that is Webster Hell. After the evening is christened by the blood of a virgin, the night of debauchery is taken over by live DJs, sure to bring together with a $5,000 costume contest, the city’s most stylish ghouls and boys! You will get unlimited drinks starting at 9 p.m. with higher-tier tickets($79 or $89). Oct 31, 8 p.m.-2 a.m., $50, 125 E. 11th St.

World’s End

And should any other doubts be held by you, co-producing the event will be the House of Yes Bushwick queens of themed parties. 11 p.m. – 6 a.m., Oct 28, costumes are mandatory. nightout.com


Anything but cheesy watch-alongs are the immersive Supercinema parties of the McKittrick Hotel. After all, this is the home of “Sleep No More”. On three nights this October, for it’s old Hollywood salute, you can expect pop-up shows, all-out décor, glamorous people and even more attractive, an all-night open bar.

At Lot 45 you can get together with your fellow fans to travel into the strangest corners of the Upside Down from sleepy Hawkins, Indiana.

And exhibits such as Madagascar and World of Reptiles will also be open. Oct 29, 7-11 p.m., $44.99, 2300 Southern Blvd.

Village Halloween Party

Getting freaky all over Greenwich Village is still a great celebration with the rest of the city, even after 43 years. The spooks come out to show off with costumes too elaborate to wear anyplace else and with always new spectacles at the Village Halloween Parade. And even if the theme in your heart is “Nightmare on Elm Street”, remember that the theme is Reverie. Oct 31, Free. At Canal Street and Sixth Avenue the parade begins and it proceeds north to 16th street on 6th Avenue. Anyone in a costume is invited to walk in the parade.
