Mayor Bill de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray on Friday opened the free ticket giveaway for festivities at Gracie Mansion this Halloween. From Friday, October 26 to Sunday, October 28, guests will be able to tour the historic home decked out in a haunted theme and enjoy activities like face painting, story-telling, a magic show, and arts and crafts. Expect both tricks and treats from the couple at this annual spooky celebration.
Families can reserve up to four admission tickets to the event, recommended for children aged 6 to 10, online or by calling 311. Ticket times will be based on time of entry and are first-come, first served. This year, in partnership with City Harvest, the city is encouraging guests to bring a non-perishable food item for the Halloween Food Drive.
