New York Halloween Parade

Last weekend we went to the nearby Rokeby estate to see a preview of the NYC Halloween and parade.  The organizers of the parade live and work at Rokeby, where the puppets are built and stored. The whole event has an other wordly, magical quality that is quite special and one of the things that makes living in the Hudson Valley so amazing.
