About this Event

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2020

Calling all princes and princesses, heroes and villains, witches and wizards!  Join Town Square for our popular Greenpoint Children's Halloween Parade & Spooktacular Party.  

The Greenpoint Children's Halloween Parade will assemble at 12 Noon in front of the Brooklyn Expo Center at 72 Noble Street near Franklin Street. Costumed kids of all ages will march up West Street to Greenpoint Avenue and back to the Brooklyn Expo Center where the kids can go trick-or-treating with the Greenpoint Market vendors (while their supplies last).  

The Spooktacular Party will start at 10 AM, with timed entries on the hour through 4 PM. We'll stop for the parade between 12 Noon and 1 PM. You'll pick the hour of your choice when purchasing your ticket. We recommend the earlier sessions for little ones (ie. 10 AM, 11 AM & 1 PM) and the later sessions for older kids (2 PM & 3 PM, with the possibility of a 4 PM).

What's in the party zone? Arts & crafts, carnival games, dancing games, live music, haunted trail, a bouncy house for little ones (10 AM, 11 AM & 1 PM sessions) and more! We may even have an epic zombie nerf war for the older kids (2 PM and later sessions). After your party hour ends, we’ll shoo you out of the party zone but you are welcome to stay longer in the Greenpoint Terminal Market section.

The Greenpoint Children's Halloween Parade is FREE to join. The Spooktacular Party tickets are $20 kid online in advance, $30 day of event if supplies are available. Due to these strange times, party tickets are limited and may sell out (just like Pumpkin Day tickets). So hurry, buy your tickets now and save!!! Proceeds benefit Town Square, local Brooklyn Boys Troop 26, Girls Troop 1G and Coed Brooklyn Pack 7. Troop 26 and Troop 1G meet at 5:30 PM on Thursday afternoons in McCarren Park in Williamsburg/Greenpoint; Pack 7 meets at 9 AM on Saturday mornings in American Playground in Greenpoint.

 

GREENPOINT CHILDREN'S HALLOWEEN PARADE FAQs

  • When and where does the parade start?  ANSWER: We start assembling at 12 Noon in front of 72 Noble Street, between Franklin Street & West Street in Greenpoint.
  • What is the parade route?  ANSWER: We will march 1 block over to West Street, up West Street to Greenpoint Avenue and back to 72 Noble Street for a spooktacular Halloween party. 
  • Do I need to be in costume to join the parade?  ANSWER: NO, but it will be more fun!
  • Do I need a ticket to join the parade?  ANSWER: NO, jump in any time and any point along the parade route from 72 Noble Street, up West Street to Greenpoint Avenue and back again. 
  • Special note for little ones: a shopping cart or wagon makes for an amazing chariot or float that your little ones can ride in!  They'll absolutely love the experience ~ mine did!

 

SPOOKTACULAR PARTY FAQs

  • Do I need a ticket for the Spooktacular Party?  ANSWER: YES. Each event costs $20 online for each child (including infants), $30 at the door. Each family can bring 2 adults with special $5 tickets; all additional adults must have $10 tickets.  Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. 
  • Do infants need a ticket to enter the party? ANSWER: YES, space is limited and all children must have a ticket.
  • Do adults need a ticket to enter the party? ANSWER: YES. Every child must be accompanied by a responsible adult.  Each family may purchase 2 special $5 adult tickets ($10 door).  Any additional adults must have a regular ticket ($20 online, $30 door) to enter the party. 
  • What will be at the party?  ANSWER:  Music, arts/crafts, games, contests, a bouncy house for little ones and so much more! 
  • Is the Zombie Nerf War happening this year? ANSWER: NO, perhaps Town Square may offer this popular event at another time. But who knows, there may be a zombie nerf element to the later older kids sessions (ie. 2 PM, 3 PM, and perhaps 4 PM).
  • Safety considerations: the Brooklyn Expo Center is an enormous indoor space, equipped by state of the art HEPA filters. Also, our Spooktacular Party will be in a separate area, located by floor-to-ceiling doors opening onto the parking lot for an indoor-outdoor experience. The activities will be spaced apart to allow for social distancing. Everyone will have their temperatures checked before entering the Brooklyn Expo Center and again, before entering the party zone. Everyone’s hands will be sanitized before entering the party zone and at various party activity areas. And everyone will be required to wear masks.
  • Can I get a refund?  ANSWER: YES until 30 days before the event. No refunds will be provided afterwards. 
  • Can I buy tickets at the event?  ANSWER: MAYBE if supplies are available. With covid times, capacity is severely constrained and you won't want to risk getting shut out. Also, it will cost $10 more! So get your tickets now and save a lot!!
