Oh My Ghoul! Witches and Weirdos Flock to Halloween Parade

This guy was on stilts.
He will also haunt your nightmares.
Again, nightmares.

Last night, The Observer braved the spooky costumes—and even worse, the ironic ones—and headed down to the West Village for the annual Village Halloween Parade. Now in its 40th year, the parade is known as the nation’s largest public Halloween celebration and reportedly attracts a whopping two million spectators.

The parade was cancelled last year due to Hurricane Sandy, so last night, more than ever, people were really getting into the Halloween spirit.
