It’s free, but you have to be dressed up for Halloween to be in the parade. The meeting point is at 6th Ave. between Canal Street & Spring Street. You have to be there at 7pm and 9pm (or a little bit earlier not to miss the parade).
You can only have access by the East and South, on Sullivan, East Broome and Canal streets. If you get there from the West, you will have to go all the way back to the east of the 6th Ave. to be part of it.
