NYC Events To Attend In The Month Of October
Have you guys been indulging in pumpkin spice EVERYTHING?! I sure have, which means October is in full swing! While we were a bit bummed not to discover that a pumpkin spice festival was being held in NYC, we did find some pretty great runner-ups. Here’s the 5 things we’re very much looking forward to indulging in this month…PSL in hand!
When: October 22nd-23rd
Where: New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx
One of my favorite parts of Halloween as a child was watching “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” on repeat all October long. Kids of NYC can now actually experience the Giant Pumpkin Weekend in the Bronx, and their parents can finally get the PERFECT shot for the upcoming holiday card. The pumpkin patch will feature monstrous gourds—weighing up to a TON—which will certainly trump any pumpkin patch upstate!
When: October 31st
Where: East Village, Sixth Ave from Spring Street to 16th Street
NYC is notorious for its parades (it seems like we have one going up 5th Avenue every other weekend, right?!), but none quite hold the candle or draw such a festive crowd as The Village Halloween Parade. The parade goes from 7pm to 10:30pm, and the one requirement to be allowed to march is you must be in costume…this year’s theme is “reverie”. We’re pretty excited to see all the dreamy mummies, zombies, Clintons, and Trumps in the lineup!
