October 22 - October 31, 2005
This 80 year old tradition started with George Green who organized the first Halloween parade in 1920 to keep locals from making mischief on Halloween. As the event grew, George petitioned Congress, and the city was officially sanctioned as the "Halloween Capital of the World".
The entire town goes mad for Halloween, from a house decoration contest to a youth Halloween dance and even a children's pumpkin carving contest.
There are three parades, too. A Night Parade, a Kiddie Parade and a Grand Day Parade. For everyone who loves to have fun on Halloween, this longest running city Halloween event is a must!
