Drawing over 10,000 fans, the Great Halloween Lantern Parade & Festival has been a beloved Baltimore tradition since 1999. The parade is a community-made, artist commissioned, spectacular evening held outdoors in Patterson Park on the last Saturday before Halloween (Oct 26th, rain date Oct 27th). Working with our neighboring schools and community groups, Creative Alliance helps produce 2,000+ lanterns that people of all ages can carry in the Parade to create an evening of light-filled wonder. We are asking Baltimore-based artists and community groups to create NEW, BIG, BRIGHT, FUN, MOBILE objects!
