The High Line is gearing up for their fourth-annual, family-friendly Halloween celebration on Saturday, October 25. Come in costume to trick-or-treat on the High Line, where dangerous trains loom, hero cowboys rule, and super-kids help to change their city. Meet ghosts from the West Side’s industrial past, turn your fears into kites to be set free, explore a haunted train tunnel made by puppet master Ralph Lee, dance to the horns of the Trummytones, and hear stories performed by the Story Pirates.
