Seeing as Hurricane Sandy squelched the Halloween holiday for most residents downtown this year, the folks at Nightmare Haunted House, who put together the super scary show “Killers,” at Clemente Soto Velez, are teaming up with local merchants to offer families a second chance to do their trick-or-treating. Adults will have another opportunity to get their fright on at the haunted house (with additional performances this coming Friday and Saturday) as well.
They write: Because the LES lacked a proper Halloween, Killers: A Nightmare Haunted House and local merchants have banded together to give the neighborhood another crack at it. All businesses with a “WE ARE A HALLOWEN TOO PARTICIPANT” sign in their windows will be passing out candy between 4-7PM on Saturday, November 10th. In addition to these signs, Nightmare Haunted House will list the merchants on their promotions page with addresses so that families can effectively trick ‘r treat. Nearly 40 merchants are participating, and that list is growing. Economy Candy on Rivington St. has already donated 100 lbs of candy. A full list (of participating merchants) is available online (here).
Additionally, adults can celebrate Halloween by getting a super cheap $20 ticket to Killers: A Nightmare Haunted House between 10-11PM on 11/10 if they come in costume then stay for the Halloween party afterward at The Suffolk Bar, located inside of the Haunted House at 107 Suffolk Street – where there will be deejays and 2-for-1 drink specials.
Killers: A Nightmare Haunted House is located at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, 107 Suffolk Street between Rivington and Delancey on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. www.hauntedhousenyc.com
