With over 20 years of monumental lantern making and spectacle-creating under their belts, the diverse communities of Baltimore come together each year to create The Great Halloween Lantern Parade and Festival in Patterson Park!
The day begins with a family festival, featuring an adorable kids costume contest, lantern making, pop-up performances, an arts & crafts market, and more. Grab a picnic blanket for your family and friends and enjoy an array of food and treats from local food trucks and enjoy the afternoon.
Once the sun sets, the magic begins. Glowing floats and lanterns parade through the night surrounded by bright and beautiful music. Everyone is welcome to grab a lantern and march with thousands of neighbors, artists, musicians, and performers. Many more line the parade route to watch the delightful Great Halloween Lantern Parade wind through the night!
