Halloween took over The Standard, High Line with the return of the long-loved Boom Boom Halloween party on Saturday night.

Capping off a trifecta of fetes in the iconic “Boom,” preceded by the now legendary Madonna Pride party and the annual Met Gala after-party hosted by Kacey Musgraves, The Standard’s loyal tribe of creatives, designers, influencers, artists, and friends returned to enjoy the cherished tradition once again in the usual parade of over-the-top costumes.

The night kicked off with music by the evening’s DJ, Mazurbate, who set the soundtrack for Boom in dedication to New York City and the dying essence of glamour to bring back what he would imagine a modern “Studio 54” would sound and feel like for one night.

A stream of guests including musicians Lorde, Anitta, and Ava Max, model Anok Yai, designers Prabal Gurung, Maisie Willen, and Laquan Smith, RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10 and 11 winners Aquaria and Yvie Oddly, and Whitney Peak were seen all dressed in their Halloween’s best costumes to toast the return of the property’s famed party.

In true Boom Boom Halloween fashion, the party would not be complete without a twist and this year not one, but two surprise performances by ‘90s superstars CeCe Peniston and Robin S made the night one to remember. Taking to the DJ booth, the artists performed live and graced the crowd with their iconic hit songs including “Finally” and “We Got a Love Thang” by CeCe Peniston and “Show Me Love” by Robin S.
