The Village Halloween Parade has been described as New York’s version of Carnival. One of the city’s largest and most colorful cultural events, the parade provides a major economic boost to Lower Manhattan.

Last year the parade was called off because of the pandemic but it was back this past weekend. WBGO’s Jon Kalish provided this preview.

Doug Doyle has been News Director at WBGO since 1998 and has taken his department to new heights in coverage and recognition. Doug and his staff have received more than 200 awards from organizations like PRNDI, AP, New York Association of Black Journalists, Garden State Association of Black Journalists and the New Jersey Society of Professional Journalists.
