Zombies arrived in Brooklyn, just in time for Halloween 2014! A Run For Your Lives, 5K Zombie Run event was held on October 25th at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. Event creators Ryan Hogan and Derrick Smith came up with the slogan before they came up with the event to go with it.
There was a zombie transformation process which included makeup, bloodiness and shredded clothes. Both zombie and non zombie participants run a muddy track with hurdles, rope ladders, water slides and other obstacles. Eventually run participants arrived at a safe zone called the Apocalypse, where there was drinking, dancing and plenty of partying going on to celebrate Halloween!
A much beloved New York City Halloween tradition and celebration took place in Manhattan where the 41st annual Village Halloween Parade was held.
The theme of this year's parade was The Garden of Earthly Delights and what a delight it was! This year's parade grand marshall was Whoppi Goldberg.
The parade had hundreds of puppets, 53 bands playing different types of music, dancers, artists and thousands of New Yorkers wearing wildly imaginative and creative costumes.
