New York City Does Halloween

A winner has been randomly chosen from those who commented on the Howeloween Blog Hop. The winner is Cassandra!!
Congratulations, and thanks to everyone who commented and stopped by my blog.

Have a Happy and Safe Halloween everyone!


Hello, and welcome to my blog. Happy Halloween! 

When I was a kid I loved to dress up for Halloween. My favorite costume was Cinderella! Did you or do dress up for Halloween? Leave a comment, and your email address, telling me what your favorite costume was and you're entered in my contest.

A winner will be picked and will receive an ebook copy of my novella Love and the Economy, a sexy story about what happens when a divorced couple are forced to live together again. Enjoy the post and the Howloween Blog Hop! 



New Yorkers love a parade. And nobody celebrates Halloween like New York City’s Village Parade. 












































The parade is a fun city tradition, featuring hundreds of puppets, 53 bands of different types of music, dancers and artists. Everyone marching in the parade must be in costume, even pooches must dress up. 






















You’ll see celebrities like Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe and Lady Gaga.













 





















The years news makers, social and political issues take center stage in this parade.

























Since the election is only weeks away, marchers will be wearing masks of their candidate of choice or making a political statement. It’s all in fun.
 For this year’s parade, I’m predicting Psy and his dancers will heat up the pavement on Sixth Avenue. I know it'll be a blast!

  2. Carolyn, I used to love dressing up as a gypsy with black hair, red lips, a long colorful or black skirt, and gold hoop earrings. Ah, those Romany lads!

  5. Great pics, Carolyn. New Yorkers sure know how to party.

    The costumes have always been my favorite part of Halloween. In fact, we were dressed as Peter Pan and Tinkerbell the year I met my hubby at a Halloween party. And no, I wasn't Tink. He was. ;-)

  6. Great pictures, Carolyn. Yes, New Yorkers love to dress up! I love the doggie costumes. My dog Murphy is going as a glow-in-the dark skeleton; I am a green M&M this year. My favorite costume was a "spelling wizard" at school. I dressed with the wizard hat, cloak, and gave a spelling bee.
    Fun! Thanks!
    Have a safe and Happy Halloween.
