Hundreds of Islanders turned out last Saturday for the annual Roosevelt Island Halloween Parade and Extravaganza, sponsored by Urban American and the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation. Ghouls, witches, princesses, and super heroes marched down Main Street together behind the Marching Cobras of New York. Following the parade, participants enjoyed performances, crafts, games, carnival rides, bouncy houses and more. New York City Council Member Ben Kallos and New York Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright both joined in the annual festivities.

Thanks to all the Island organizations who contributed to the event, which is one of the Island's most beloved traditions!
