September 23, 2015 marks the first day of FALL but do you know how you can enjoy this beautiful weather?
Here are a list of 6 things to do during the Fall in NYC:
1. OKTOBERFEST in NYC
Beautiful weather and you get to drink some of the best beer in NYC? Why not! Take in the beautiful fall foliage while drinking at one of the best beer gardens and beer halls in New York City. Oktoberfest New Yorkers, take advantage of this glorious holiday to sample fine Bavarian beer and food. The official dates for this Bavarian festival are Saturday, September 19 through Sunday, October 5, 2015.
2. Village Halloween Parade
Not sure how to celebrate your Halloween? How about you attend iconic Village Halloween Parade. Spend your night in NYC roaming around Christopher Street in your costume and witness all the other bizarre costumes! Pure fun!
3. Blood Manor Haunted House
Ugly zombies, monsters and other ghoulish creatures await in this 5,000-square-foot labyrinth of horrors, deemed too scary for children under 14 to enter without supervision. Pass through themed rooms such as the Vestibule of the Undead and the Banquet of Torture. It’s popular, so are likely to be long—consider shelling out for an “R.I.P.” express access ticket for $50.
4. Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade
Imagine puppies in the cutest costumes! If you enjoy this, you’ll have to head to the East Village for this annual dog parade. The best costume recieves $4,000 worth of prizes on offer, including an iPad Mini for Best in Show. No pooch? No problem: Grateful Greyhounds, Bide-A-Wee, Friends of Animal Rescue and the Mayor’s Alliance for New York City Animals will be on hand with canines that need a loving home. Just remember, a dog’s for life, not just for a costume contest!
5. Columbus Day
Were you given Columbus Day off work? Heck yes! Still, today serves as a neat reminder to book free tickets to see one of our favorite pieces of public art this fall, Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi’s site-specific piece Discovering Columbus. With the assistance of the Public Art Fund, Nishi has built a fully furnished living room around the statue of the Italian explorer in Columbus Circle.
6. Thanksgiving Parade 2015
Before America collectively fashions a can holder out of its beer gut and settles in to watch some football, all eyes turn to Manhattan and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, an annual pageant of giant balloons, floats, cheerleaders, clowns, marching bands, Broadway shows and celebs. Sure, it’s fun to watch in your PJs, but if you have visitors in town, take them to watch the procession in person! Enjoy this amazing experience! Once you see Santa at the end, it means it’s Christmas time!
