"New Orleans may have its debauchery-fueled Carnival parties during Mardi Gras - where the streets fill with jazz bands, colorful characters, and the intricately-feathered costumes of the Mardi Gras Indians - but New York has a raucous nighttime festival all its own: the Village Halloween Parade."

On this week's edition of THE PLAYBOOK (a new biweekly publication by Greats Brand), Complex editor and New York's own Jian DeLeon walks us through a brief history of the city's worst-kept secret: a 200,000 party in the streets, with enough tricks and treats for an entire metropolis. Check out the full story of the Village Halloween Parade at the link here

Happy Halloween!
