Boo! Time to pull out your holiday dress! This year, Karina Dresses is participating in an iconic NYC event, New York’s 41st Village Halloween Parade. Our trim and materials will be used to construct some of the costumes that you will see featured in the parade! More than 2 million people will pack the streets of Greenwich Village to see the parade live. The parade’s mile long stage will consist of tens of thousands of costumed marchers, hundreds Halloween characters, including giant masks and puppets, dozens of marching bands playing music from around the world stilt walkers, jugglers, break dancers and other street performers. Make sure you are one in attendance on Friday, October 31st!

Dear Ms. Cousineau,

On behalf of New York’s Village Halloween Parade, I am writing to extend our heartfelt thanks for your generosity!

We were delighted, inspired and overjoyed to find your donation of trim when we visited the warehouse! All will be turned to amazing use by puppeteers, children, bands and dancers as we prepare for this year’s 41st Anniversary Parade. Our theme this year is Garden of Earthly Delights! And your donation is one of them!

The NYC Village Halloween Parade is the largest cultural celebration of its kind in the world, entertaining millions while remaining faithful to its roots in the local community. We are committed to the cultural and imaginative life of New York City and its environs and to the advancement of large-scale participatory events in the belief that such events, when artistically inspired, play an enduring role in the rejuvenation of the City’s spirit, economy and the life of its people.

Our work is made possible every year thanks to a largely volunteer staff and donations such as those made by you to Materials for the Arts.

Nearly all of our work is done with donated or recycled materials–so we count on YOU!

Kind regards,

Jeanne
