Halloween events around the country

Nyc halloween
What’s up for Halloween around the country? Parades (like last year's Village Halloween Parade in New York, pictured above), haunted houses, zombie walks, and pumpkin-tossing contests, as well as the usual costume parties and trick-or-treating. Some events, like theme park parties, are not for the squeamish-of-wallet. Others, like many parades and zombie walks, are free. Here is a sampling of Halloween-themed events across the USA. And if you’re thinking about marking the haunted time of year at one of Florida’s theme parks, be sure to read Hannah Sampson’s review of the scariest events here, and check details of all the theme park parties here.
