Halloween a bust, they got in the spirit of Gede

Sandy washed out the annual Greenwich Village Halloween Parade. But Haitian revelers in Brooklyn were still in the spirit to celebrate Gede, voodoo’s version of the Day of the Dead, which falls on Nov. 1 and 2. Gede is known for its infectious drum rhythms and a dance known as banda. The event was held at an Irish bar in Ditmas Park.
