Not a brilliant photo this, but it partially conveys a sense of the procession...At the train tracks on 6th Avenue, the parade dips through the tunnel underpass. An undulating snake of skeletons, bogeywomen and the deceased wend their way beneath a phalanx of stilted, Ram-headed giants glowing red with roadflares. When the train passed everyone screamed with glee. To the right you can see the gynormous pumpkin of wishes pulled by the Horned Man.
