NEW YORK (AP) - The annual Halloween Parade will have a famous face leading the ghouls and goblins up Manhattan’s Sixth Avenue this year.

The parade’s organizers say Whoopi Goldberg has been named as the event’s grand marshal.

She’ll be on a float that represents the parade’s theme, “The Garden of Earthly Delights.”

Goldberg says she’s “thrilled to be a part of such a time-honored tradition.”

The parade is known for the throngs of people it brings out. Along with organized floats and groups, the event welcomes anyone in costume to join in the march.
