A Party Guide to the Best Halloween Events Happening in NYC
Halloween is quickly approaching, and the time to make plans is narrowing down. We spend weeks planning our costumes and end up waiting until the last minute to make solid party plans. Well, not this year!

With hundreds of halloween parties taking place throughout the city, we can trust Fever to pick the crème de la crème of events you’ll want to be seen at. I mean, you came up with a killer costume, now show it off at the right places.

Since Hallows Eve falls in the dead center of the week this year, there will be parties happening all weekbut a majority will take place the weekend before (on Saturday, October 27). If you’re still not sure what your plans are, here are some of the best events happening in NYC for the ghoulish holiday:
