Looked like party-goers really missed the annual New York Halloween Party.

A year since the party was scrapped due to COVID-19, the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade returned with a bang this year as tens of thousands of revelers took part in the event at Sixth Avenue.

Two of the unique costume this year was that of a vaccination card and “Pfizer shot”.

Alex Durante, 38, of Williamsburg wore the vaccination card while his girlfriend did the “Pfizer shot” costume.

This year’s 48 celebration was all-out as it also featured floats, dancing, and music from 53 bands.

Comedian Randy Rainbow was tapped as the 2021 grand marshal after gaining popularity for his parody song “Mr. Biden (Bring My Vaccine)” on YouTube last March.

The event’s artistic and producing director Jeanne Fleming is very happy with the success of the event since it drew 60,000 participants and half a million spectators.

“This is more than I can ever imagine,” Fleming said.

“This is the heart and soul of New York City. This is people reaching into their hearts and doing something for each other,” Fleming added.

Sources said aside from the usual COVID-themed costumes, revelers dressed in typical Halloween get-ups, including zombies, Grim Reapers, witches, Jokers, and clowns.
