Traditionally, Halloween is a one-day happening that takes place exclusively on Oct. 31.

But with this year’s haunted holiday falling on a Thursday, Halloween 2013 has been stretched into a half monthlong period of masquerade merriment.

In other words, whether celebrations were attended last weekend (Oct. 25-26), mask-loving Long Islanders will be getting another large dose of Halloween parties starting on Nov. 1.

Here are some spots to consider if you're looking to keep your costume out of the closet for at least a few more days (be sure to call ahead to check for possible cover charges):
