Sure, having Halloween actually fall on a weekend would be dope BUT we're totally digging how Halloween on a Tuesday gives us an extended celebration. We hereby declare the Halloweekend lasts through Tuesday.
From now until the big day, there are plenty of exciting, festive events happening to really get you in the spirit (despite certain Christmas-themed events currently jumping the gun *cough cough* Winter Village *cough*)
Hopefully, all your costume arrangements are in order and you're ready to celebrate!
Friday, October 27th
This ghoulish tour explores Brooklyn's most infamous neighborhoods, visiting sites of both ancient and recent deadly events, even dating back to the 1600s. It even includes a visit to where alleged alien abductions took place near the Brooklyn Bridge.
