Hurricane Sandy shut down the beloved Greenwich Village Halloween Parade last year, but neither bad weather nor bad economics could stop the parade from making its triumphant return last night. Tens of thousands of New Yorkers took to Sixth Avenue as Futurama characters, evil clowns, crayons, skeleton people, Pixar characters, and lots of other delightful and ghoulish things. Click through above to see LOTS of photos of the parade, and check out a few videos below of the classic "Thriller" dance recreation and more! In the words of Lou Reed, see ya next year.
