Full Blast Party

If there’s not a year where everybody in all of New York City got back together after 2 years of lockdown and limited capacity, it’s this one tonight as the 49th Annual Greenwich Village Halloween Parade marched from Tribeca working its way up to midtown Manhattan with throngs of revelers and participants dressed up in the most creative and most sexiest costumes to celebrate this year’s theme of freedom, in what’s always the greatest city in the world.

Freedom dons the parade route whether you’re a true scare enthusiast that is Halloween, or you turn to pop culture like “Stranger Things”, “Euphoria”, or the Billboard Hot 100 playlist so you can have the most unique and dynamic costume in all of Manhattan, or on a bigger stage such as social media to get as many likes as possible.

Apparently, this is not just an individual thing you do, friends on friends on friends join in the parade either at 6th Avenue and Canal Street following along until 23rd Street, or you’re one of the many floats from schools, organizations, and such that are the parade who emphasize the theme of Freedom, then again you could be in 2 class of people like making a donation to march in front of the parade with the Grand Marshal of 2022 who is
The Brooklyn United Marching Band with Special Surprise Guests, marching with Artistic and Producing Director, Jeanne Fleming.

Now, if you’re one of the lucky ones in the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, you’re one who got to ride on top of a black school bus with like-minded parade participants who instead of marching, they opted to join the VIP Bus which was filled with every costume character you could spot, access to where the cool kids hang out also involves making a donation to make this fine parade possible, and it’s a small fortune that not only helps, but does not hurt.

And as always, Daniel plus Lauren got in on the Halloween action, marching in the Halloween Parade for the first time ever, strutting up 6th Avenue in an ASOS Black Satin Mesh Dress, where DPL Journalist and Founder, Daniel Quintanilla, mimicked the newest white hot pop music icon that tore up the Billboard Charts in 2021, if it’s “Good 4 U”, and you’ve got a “Driver’s License” with a can of gasoline, you guest it, Olivia Rodrigo.

Yes, New York City with its lovely borough of Manhattan have done it again with the 49th Annual Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, rising above the challenges of the past 2 years, celebrating the freedom we have in expressing our inner selves on this Halloween 2022, where we are allowed to tell the world that we can dream too, taking it to another level where it leads to the greatest things possible, and giving it to you not later, but right now, because Halloween can only be done one way, with you here, in costume, makeup, and you ready to party.
