Procession of Ghouls

October 27, 2012  •  1 Comment

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine has been home to an annual Halloween Extravaganza and Procession of the Ghouls.  As one of the largest cathedrals in the world, it is the perfect venue to host the costumed celebration of this macabre holiday.  The evening begins with a showing of a classic silent film, this year being Nosferatu.  An organ player fills the church with eerie melodies as the film is shown to an audience of adults and children.  After the screening, Ralph Lee and the Mettawee River Theater Company’s elaborate ghosts and puppets make their way down the center aisle.  A demonic creature leads the way from a smoke filled altar, followed by ghouls and outlandish monsters that interact with those who dared to sit closest to the procession.  If you are in the New York City area, it is definitely an experience you should have - just make sure to get your tickets early!

I love the Procession of the Ghouls. We used to go every year until we realized that they just play the same three movies on rotation. Love the photos.
