Now that you know how to do Halloween in NYC right, you need a place to do it. Tickets to the mysterious "You Are So Lucky" party may or may not be sold out, but if you're still looking for a party to scare you out of your Party City pants, we've got you covered.

First things first: New York City loves a parade. And Halloween brings out the best in citizens storming the streets. The 42nd Annual Halloween Parade begins at 7 p.m., heading up 6th Avenue from Broome Street. According to the official website, the streets are most crowded between Bleecker and 14th Street, so you might consider getting there early or try another place along the route. (To march in the parade, simply show up in costume at 6th Avenue at Canal Street between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.) And if you can't make it out, or are scared of the sheer number of Sexy Pizza Rats on the street, you can watch a telecast live on NY1 from 7:30 to 9:30.

On Friday night, break out your best Kurt Cobain or Huey Lewis costumes (extra points if you convince your roommates to be the News) at The Skint's Come as You Are/Express Yourself & 90s Halloween Party. Kick it at the pre-All Hallows' Eve blowout featuring the best of the '80s and '90s spun by DJ Steve Reynolds (mix master of Party Like It's 1999), horror movie and music video projections by Stephen Pitalo (Music Video Time Machine), a haunted photo booth by Ventikoland, $5-$7 drink specials, and lots of candy.

The Skint, 622 Degraw Street, Brooklyn // Tickets $5 in advance or $8 at the door

On Halloween proper, check out PSYCHOPOMP: A Halloween Club Night at The Brooklyn Masonic Temple. A collaboration between Boom Collective, Meatball, and GAYLETTER, this spooky boogie down is a gay Halloween party, but organizers promise that "if you're into amazing dance music, and you like spooky Masonic Temples, you'll want to check us out, regardless of your orientation." Inclusivity and Freemasons? Yes and yes.

Brooklyn Masonic Temple, 317 Clermont Ave// Tickets $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

On the other side of the Verrazano in Staten Island, roll up to Cobra Sun Studio's Haunted Skatepark Halloween Show. Along with kick-flipping ghosts (not yet confirmed), rock out with Rising Sun All Stars, Frank Castle, Wester, Sicada, and more. There's also a best costume contest, with 100 spooky bucks on the line for best male and female get-up.

If you're looking for some culture with your frights, The New York Botanical Garden is celebrating Dia de Los Muertos through the weekend in honor of the end of Frida Kahlo exhibit (as seen here attended/vetted/blessed by Queen Bey) The festivities include stilt walkers, Latin music acts, Mexican films, an artist carving giant pumpkins, and an opportunity to create your own mask. The park is open for 10 to 6, so there's plenty of time to rage after you survey the flowers.
