Halloween Freakfest on Sunday
Check out the free Tompkins Square Halloween Freakfast and variety show on Sunday. Per the press release:
A free Halloween themed show in New York City’s Tompkins Square Park, featuring great music, creative costumes, a costume contest, a clothing swap, political speakers, helpful information and lots of surprises!!
Halloween Freakfest is part of a series of shows that celebrate the vitality of the counter cultural scene that has survived on the Lower East Side, despite the rampant gentrification, soaring rents and lost venues that have contributed to the cultural genocide sweeping New York City.
