“New York’s Village Halloween Parade is an annual holiday parade and street pageant presented the night of every Halloween (October 31) in New York City’s Greenwich Village. Stretching more than a mile, this cultural event draws two million spectators, fifty thousand costumed participants, dancers, artists and circus performers, dozens of floats bearing live bands and other musical and performing acts, and a world-wide television audience of one hundred million.
It is the largest public Halloween event in the United States, and the country’s only major night parade. It has been called “New York’s Carnival.”
Every year, in cities around the world, people ride bikes naked to celebrate cycling and the human body.
The ride demonstrates the vulnerability of cyclists on the road and is a protest against car culture.
“It’s time to put a stop to the indecent exposure of people and the planet to cars and the pollution they create. We face automobile traffic with our naked bodies as the best way of defending our dignity and exposing the vulnerability faced by cyclists and pedestrians on our streets as well as the negative consequences we all face due to dependence on oil, and other forms of non-renewable energy. ”
