Happy fall! Do you have your calendars ready? Because I’m about to book it up
with astounding October festivities in New York City, such as Halloween parties, haunted
houses, concerts and conventions!
1. Village Halloween Parade
50,000, ghouls, witches, zombies and giant puppets march in the NYC Village
Halloween Parade. This year’s theme is ‘I Am a Robot’! So head to the nearest
Halloween costume store and be creative! It’s free to march in the parade, but
costumes are mandatory. However, you don’t have to dress up to join the party. The
parade lines up at Sixth Ave and Canal St and rolls out from 6:30pm–8:30pm on Halloween, October 31, 2018.
2. Ipsy’s Gen Beauty
Where are all my fellow beauty lovers?? I have the perfect event for you this October.
Ipsy’s NYC Gen Beauty will be happening at the Javits Center, on October 13-14th . If you
love free makeup, then get ready to come home with a huge bag of it. If you pay for general admission, you will get a huge bag of free makeup and the chance to meet your favorite beauty influencers. This year Patrick Starr, Gabriel Zamora, Kandee Johnson and more will be there. OH, and my favorite part — 60 MAKEUP BRANDS WILL BE THERE.
I already bought my ticket and I’m beyond excited to go.
3. Comic Con
To those who love comics, and we know there are many of you: the biggest pop culture event in North America is back in town. NYC Comic Con 2018 is filled with many panels, celebrities, shopping and a fascinating amount of cosplay costumes. If you plan to attend Comic Con, costumes are not mandatory, but it is more fun to participate. So, get your costumes ready, and hurry and get your tickets. This event will take place at the Javits Center, on October 4-7th.
There will be some really awesome concerts going on at Madison Square Garden this
October. Singers such as J. Cole, Bruno Mars, Christina Aguilera, Elton John, Maroon 5,
Russ, Justin Timberlake, Billy Joel and many more. All in the matter of one month, some
of your favorite singers will be performing at Madison Square Garden.
