A Frighteningly Fun Time at the Baton Rouge Halloween Parade

The leaves are turning, and there’s a ghoulish foreboding in the night air—all signs that the 7th annual Baton Rouge Halloween Parade is nearly upon us. On Saturday, October 28, starting at 2 P.M., join the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank and the many costumed marchers, dancers, and musical acts ready to entertain you as they process through downtown Baton Rouge. With an overarching theme of Rhythm and Boos, this year’s parade will pay tribute to the eclectic blend of music that’s made Baton Rouge a unique cultural hub throughout its history. Designated parade participants will be collecting donations of non-perishable food items directly from the crowd, and all proceeds from the event will help to make Halloween a safe and joyous holiday for the kids of the greater Baton Rouge community. With its incredible costumes, extravagant floats, and generous candy throws, the Baton Rouge Halloween Parade promises to be a great time for kids and adults alike.
