Here's a listing of some of the fun Halloween parties and events open to the public in Queens.
There are a lot of parties planned for Halloween Weekend and Halloween Day this year. There are costume parties and live music for adults, and parades and parties for the kids. This report will provide you with a sampling of party opportunities for adults in the borough of Queens surrounding the Halloween holiday. And this page also includes links to the kids Halloween parties in Queens, as well as Halloween parties in other boroughs.
The photo to your right was taken of a Halloween party crowd in Queens in an earlier year. Halloween allows the latent artist and theatrical actor in us all, to come out of its inhibition. In earlier times it was said that masquerade events were to give the upper and lower classes a chance to mingle without being scandalized - as everyone was in costume.

Saturday, October 29, 2022 at night - Unconfirmed
Description. In 2020, one of the Gaslight Pub owners bought out the other, renovated the place and renamed it to The Goat, which is a favorite bar in Dublin, Ireland, of the owner's . So in 2021 he threw The Goat's first Halloween party and made it official, which the Old Gaslight had never done in the past. What that meant exactly, I don't know, but the unofficial Halloween party of the Old Gaslight was pretty good.
The old Gaslight Pub had hosted what I'd call a 'neighborhood bar Halloween party' in prior years, which I had attended on a couple of occasions. They generally have music playing and lots of party-goers came dressed in costumes for which they offered a prize or two. The crowd tends to be in their twenties, thirties and possibly forties, primarily from the surrounding Sunnyside, Woodside, LIC neighborhoods. The photo to your right was taken at the Halloween Party in Sunnyside years back.
