GREENWICH VILLAGE (PIX11) -- It's the treasured tradition here in New York City that brings out close to a million people each year.

The Village Halloween Parade will be celebrating it's 41st year as it makes it's way up 6th Avenue on what's expected to be a chilly night in the Big Apple.

From the costumes to the floats, dull moments need not apply.

A-lister and Oscar winner Whoopi Goldberg will serve as the Grand Marshall.

Another highlight will include a troop of dancing zombies that will break out in dance to Michael Jackson's timeless classic "Thriller."
