Halloween in the city can be a blast, and Bryant Park is getting into the spirit of the season with two events that will put smiles on the faces of the scariest monsters and the most imperiled princesses.  

On Saturday, October 25, Le Carrousel hosts the ghoul-est party in town. We invite all kids and their parents to Tricks and Treats, an hour-long celebration of the scary and the silly. Justin the Magician hosts this fast-paced bash, offering stories, songs, and, of course, amazing tricks. There will be face painting, pumpkin painting and trick-or-treating for all, and afterwards, you can top it off with a few spins on our very own carousel. Rides are only $3, and $15 gets you ten rides. Tricks and Treats at Le Carrousel runs from 1pm-2pm. 

Then on the big day itself, take the guesswork out of where to bring your kids for trick-or-treating by coming to Bank of America Winter Village. From 3pm-6pm on Friday, October 31, participating Holiday Shops will give away free treats to kids who are dressed in costume. Check-in at Southwest Porch to receive a trick-or-treating bag, courtesy of Bank of America, then march through the park in search of kiosks with a pumpkin icon.

Also next week, we launch two special Holiday Shops series. October 28 is the first of four Tasting Tuesdays of the season. Visitors will be given a map of participating kiosks to use for a self-guided tour of free bites and sips. And on Thursday, October 30, its time to Walk the Shops. Both programs run from 5pm-7pm, and at the end of either tour, participants are eligible for free gift certificates while supplies last.
