    Booooo! Not even the ghosts and goblins are safe from Sandy.

    The annual Village Halloween Parade scheduled for Wednesday has been canceled, its website says.

    That's the first time in its four-decade history.

    The parade usually draws 50,000 to 60,000 wildly dressed residents and tourists for a spirited march through the lower part of Manhattan.

    But large parts of lower Manhattan are without power following the superstorm.

    This year's parade theme was "Tick tock" and the final year of the Mayan calendar, with "visions apocalyptic."

    A call to the parade's producing director, Jeanne Fleming, went unanswered.
