President Trump and killer clowns parade in NYC for Halloween

Despite a terrorist attack in lower Manhattan earlier in the day, large crowds of costumed people turned up to watch the New York City Village Halloween Parade. Participants dressed as Beetlejuice, killer clowns and President Trump made their freewheeling way through lower Manhattan.

Creativity was on display even if current events were on marchers’ minds, and a crowd of thousands in costume flowed up Sixth Avenue on Halloween night. (Yahoo News)
