It’s downright scary how many Halloween events there are in NYC this weekend, both family friendly and those more suited for adults only. Here’s a partial list of FREE and cheap Halloween events; find additional hauntings and events on the NYCOTC posting earlier this week.
Saturday, Oct. 27 –
High Line Park — Bring the kids for face painting, live 1930s-style music, pumpkin decorating, dress-up photos with take-home prints, and a fun and spooky scavenger hunt featuring characters from the High Line’s industrial past.Stop by the 10th Avenue Square at West 17th Street to see the High Line Ghost Train, a giant freight train made of recycled materials by puppet master Ralph Lee and students at Public Schools 3, 11, and 33 as part of the High Line Teaching Artists Halloween Program.

Jackie Robinson Park — Join zombies and others in the worldwide Thrill the World dance day, the world’s largest global event that is a tribute to Michael Jackson and an opportunity to raise money for children’s charities. If you want to be part of the world-record dancing, you must register for the 3 p.m. event. Otherwise, you are just a spectator, which isn’t such a bad thing. There also are ticketed events, including a dance party in Coney Island on Saturday night
