Glammed and relaxed vampires and vixens, the best way to celebrate is at New York’s most eccentric and ghoulishly stylish event: The Village Halloween Parade. Do your best zombie walk with thousands of creative souls in imaginative garb, including musicians, dancers, puppeteers, artists, and more, of all ages. Those in costume, the entrance is at 6th Avenue south of Spring Street and north of Canal Street between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. The parade will march along 6th Avenue from Spring Street to 21st Street from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m.

As expected, there are also tons of parties and after-parade hotspots to continue your howling from dusk to dawn. Visit Http:// to pick your evening poison.

For example, bars along the Lower East Side that will offer creepy drinks include Macondo’s (157 E. Houston St.) and The Summit Bar (133 Ave. C.) The Empire Hotel is offering its’ signature Halloween cocktail, the Jack O’Lantern, available at The Lobby Bar. (The Empire Hotel is located at 44 W. 63rd St.)

To make you own Jack O’Lantern: 2 oz. Jack Daniels, .5 oz. Lucid Absinthe, orange bitters, and 2 sugar cubes.
