The Parade is back! After being cancelled last year due to Hurricane Sandy, New York City’s Village Halloween Parade roared back to celebrate its 40th year. A little drizzle could not stop this crowd with Kelly Ripa as Celebrity Host! This year’s Revival theme produced many new group costumes – mechanical rabbits, pumpkins, penguins and Ghost Busters! The crowd favorites of giant skeletons, Chinese serpents and the Thiller zombies also returned. In fact, zombies were everywhere – even a zombie carnival dancer. Of course, politics were a big theme with groups for the government shutdown, Obamacare and the monsters of the Tea Party. Surprisingly, I did not see one Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke pair.
All of these photos were shot with the new Canon 70D. Many of these photos were shot at 3200ISO or 6400ISO. The touch screen focus working incredibly well! More photos to come as well as a video!
All photos shot with the Canon 70D & Canon 18-135 EF-S STM lens
