Bronx Halloween Parties 2019
Halloween Parties in Mott Haven, Port Morris, Longwood, Fordham, University Heights & Other Neighborhoods in the Bronx
Halloween occurs on a Thursday this year. The Bronx Halloween party celebrations begin as early as Friday, October 25th running through the weekend, with some Bronx Halloween parties on Halloween day itself.
Halloween is one big costume party, where the theatrical side of people, is given a small opening. Halloween provides people the opportunity to create and play roles they have wanted to play, that the day-to-day keeps submerged. Is it their Doctor side or their Jekyll side - or something uncategorizable?
In the photo at right in the introduction to this story is a woman attending a Halloween party at the Queens Museum a number of years ago. In the body of the story, the photo at right is an actor at ID Theater in Mott Haven who performed in a play which was a part of the 14th annual city-wide, Celebrate Mexico Now in 2017. Professional actors are paid to assume and perform roles, but on Halloween it's an all-volunteer, unpaid, theatrical free-for-all ... but that very chaos of creativity is what also makes it so much fun.
