Patterson Park Pulaski Monument

The community that creates together is GREAT together! Join your neighbors, friends, and family and help bring this year's festival and parade to life! Rise, the theme of this year’s parade, is a celebration of nature and community - both thrive, grow stronger, and rise when they’re treasured.

Celebrate the natural world with us by creating illuminated lanterns, carrying glowing large scale artist-made floats, and marching with Baltimore’s most beloved community bands around Patterson Park. The astounding parade finale includes spectacular storytelling, animation, and music the entire family can enjoy!

The day begins at 3:30pm with Baltimore's BEST family Halloween festival featuring an adorable kids costume contest, lantern making, hayrides, yoga, live music, an arts & crafts market, and more! Local food trucks and the beer garden will stay open until 8:30pm. Bring your picnic blanket and enjoy the afternoon!

Once the sun sets, the magic begins. Grab your lantern and get ready to march with thousands of your neighbors, artists, musicians, and performers. You can also line the parade route to watch the delightful Great Halloween Lantern Parade!! The route begins at the Boat Lake in Patterson Park, heads east to the annex of the Park, and ends back at the Pulaski Monument for a specially commissioned FINALE on the stage.

EVERYONE is welcome to dress in costume, bring a lantern, and march in the Parade.
