NEW YORKFor the first time, New York City’s iconic Village Halloween Parade is featuring a VIP section. The 45th Annual parade is themed, “I AM a Robot!”

“Grand Marshal Machine Dazzle will lead the Special VIP Robot Section of the 45th Annual Village Halloween Parade, calling upon Halloween makers and marchers to join in our positronic collective, expressing our inner cyborgs for an evening of robotic revelry.”

Get automated and support the 45th Annual Village Halloween Parade by purchasing an advance ticket for $25 – now available on EventBrite. Ticketholders will avoid lines with access to a secret entry point for early admission, enjoy a special DJ and soundtrack for an In-Parade party, and get the chance to meet other wildly creative Halloween fanatics from New York City and around the world. Robot costumes are required to march in the Special VIP Robot Section.

“We are thrilled to invite the public to join our first ever special VIP section,” stated Jeanne Fleming, Artistic/Producing Director of New York’s Halloween Parade. “With artificial intelligences learning, adapting, interpreting and reacting as humans do, the times we live in can be overwhelming. This traditional and beloved event aspires to bring folks into their creative imagination—celebrating that quality that differentiates us from robots—and by extension make the world a better place. We as New Yorkers and those visiting the Big Apple can come together, affirm our identity, block out the distractions, focus on joy and inhabit the streets of New York LIVE.”

The legendary Village Halloween Parade has entertained the public on Halloween night for the past 44 years, on 6th Avenue North of Spring Street to 16th Street on October 31 from 7 pm – 10:30 pm. The Special VIP Robot Section will line up for the parade at 6 pm at a secret location to be announced closer to the event.
