Village Halloween Parade Returns to WPIX

WPIX giving viewers a “treat” on Halloween weekend.

For the second straight year, WPIX is the broadcast home of the Village Halloween Parade. You can see the exclusive coverage is Saturday, October 29 from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.

PIX Morning News anchors Sukanya Krishnan and Frances Rivera get “introduced” to the nighttime audience.

This year, Channel 11 isn’t just covering the outrageous Village Halloween Parade, New York City’s only parade after dark. WPIX is also part of the event with the its first float featuring Family Guy and “Stewie’s Sexy Dance Party.”  (Family Guy reruns air on WPIX weeknights)

But, there’s more ”Shoctober” excitement on Channel 11.

The station is resurrecting Chiller Theater for a pair of frightful films Saturday night: Little Shop of Horrors, the 1960 Jack Nicholson version (6:30 p.m.), and the 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead (8 p.m.).

Chiller Theater has a long history on WPIX, originally airing from 1961 to 1978, and again from 1980 to 1982. Chiller Theater, which returned in 2008, includes the vintage “The Six-Fingered Hand” open.
