It’s not until the parades have ended and the last pieces of candy have been passed out that the true fun begins in Brooklyn on Halloween.

And with the holiday not until Monday, Brooklynites will have four days to dress up and celebrate. With so many events to choose from at bars, clubs and other venues, it can be hard to sift through an oversaturated schedule of festivities.

The Brooklyn Eagle has therefore selected the borough’s top events for this weekend. Costumes are encouraged and are mandatory to enter some of these parties, so plan accordingly.
