The New York’s infamous Village Halloween Parade is apparently facing its second cancellation in as many years. Last year, it was because of Hurricane Sandy. This year it falls on the side of lack of funding. A fund raising campaign has been set up for the parade, but with a month to go before the deadline, parade organizers have not even raised half of what is required to keep the parade green lit.
