Grand Central Terminal Invites Families to “Trick or Treat the Terminal” and Enjoy Halloween Festivities

Grand Central Terminal celebrates Halloween with trick or treating and family activities. Families can explore the Terminal and collect candy from nine locations throughout, while meeting famous children’s characters and enjoying spooky music from three live acts. The Terminal provides a safe, easy, indoor setting for kids to trick or treat. Families can check-in and begin their fun with live pumpkin carving demonstrations at the Grand Central Taxi Stand (Vanderbilt Avenue) before exploring the iconic building with free tote bags packed with Grand Central Terminal treats!

The Halloween festivities at the Terminal will include:

  • Trick or Treat tote bags with a $10 gift card for the delivery service Mercato to use for ordering Grand Central Market food straight to your door. Free at check-in while supplies last.
  • A live pumpkin-carving station.
  • Photo opportunities with Halloween characters.
  • Three live musical acts.
  • A chance to win a family dinner for four at the Oyster Bar.

Updated information can be found here. A downloadable map detailing all trick or treat locations will be available later this month.
