We Love A Parade:
Halloween, New York, October 31, 2014

The 41st Halloween Parade rolls up 6th Avenue as the Giant Skeleton puppet leads the way on a cool damp Hallows Eve. This year’s theme, “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” witnessed Serpents, Butterflies, Bats, Flowers, and many self-made costumes of all sizes and ages.

These images celebrate the will to dress up, be as you are, celebrate the anonymous.
