About the Mask-Querade event on 7th Street Halloween afternoon

East Village restaurateur Ravi DeRossi's Overthrow Hospitality company is hosting a socially distanced Trick-or-Treat Halloween festival for children ages 12 and under. 

It's happening on Saturday, Oct. 31 from 2-4 p.m. on Seventh Street between Avenue A and First Avenue.

A few details via the EVG inbox...
Children accompanied by a parent or guardian are invited to trick or treat safely and socially distanced, with masks being required. Adults will be able to sit in designated viewing stations to watch children with complimentary mulled wine and spiced cider. 
Costumes are welcome, but not required. Masks and social distancing protocols will be enforced by volunteer community members as well as staggered entrance and exit times for participants.
We are looking for volunteers to hand out candy. If anyone is interested, then please send us an email at 

DeRossi owns several restaurants on that block, including Avant Garden and Ladybird.
