Baltimore Bubble Parade (8th Annual)

YAYYY!! The 8th Annual Baltimore Bubble Parade!
Last year we had over 600 people come, and it was a wonderful time! Come join us this year. It just keeps getting better and better!

We will meet inside Riverside Park on the Covington Street side in the grass at 2, where we gather and party for 2 hours with the photobooth, live music, bubble games and activities, lawn games, eat, blow bubbles, dance, buy merch, and get instructions.

Then at 4 we’ll gather for the parade and walk. We’ll announce the winners of the raffle and costume contest and continue to dance and play until 5:00. Feel free to stay at the park. There’s a lovely playground and lots of space to run around with your family and dog!

This year this event IS ticketed! Tickets are required per person (with the exception of ages 2 and under). When you arrive, you’ll need to check in with a ticket check-point person and you’ll receive a wristband.
Tickets increase the day of the event, so it’s encouraged that you purchase your tickets in advance. Tickets need to be purchased online through the link provided. Upon arrival, you just need to show one of the ticket takers your confirmation order page either on your phone or printed out. So when you check out, please save that email.


The parade itself is simple. We’re just walking, rolling, and strolling while blowing bubbles!
There is a sidewalk on the outer perimeter of the park. We will start walking there so people from their homes can see us and we still have an audience and we don’t disrupt people exercising in the park.
The route will be starting from the intersection of Covington + Heath. We’re making an outer loop around half of the park.


I really want you all to come dressed as your most happy, fabulous, fun, silliest, MERRIEST selves! To encourage that, I’m going to give away THREE prizes to the BEST DRESSED!
1) Best dressed child human!
2) Best dressed adult human!
3) Best dressed dog!

I will announce the winners AFTER we circle back from the parade. Please come back to where we started to claim your prize and hear the winners!

Cut through the park (along Heath) back to our starting point

The point is to have fun, dance, twirl, blow bubbles, play music, spread joy, and create a beautiful scene that people (including you, the participants), can enjoy! And let’s be honest, it’s a fantastic photo-op!

Please make sure you’re hydrated. While the walk is short, it can take longer than it would normally take you on your own because we’re doing it as a group. Go at your own pace, don’t rush anyone.

We don’t have to manage any major intersections, but please be respectful of anyone utilizing the park for playing, dog walking, resting, and/or exercising.


You can find bubble wands and supplies at Dollar Tree, Michaels, Target, Walmart, Big Lots, Party City, JoAnn’s, Five Below and online.
The sooner you secure your bubbles the better. They go quickly in the spring!

So *please*, if you have bubble supplies, *bring them*! Bubble guns, bubble wands, bubble machines, bubble anything are encouraged.

–I will NOT be providing free bubbles this year, but I WILL have bubble wands for sale!–


This area is on the verge of Federal Hill and Locust Point. There really isn’t any paid or metered parking around there. It’s all free! It is all residential, though, and it’s a weekend. So please pay attention to signs, be mindful of driveways, and general laws.


Straight down Heath is a shopping center with a Shoppers Market and Dollar Tree. At the corner of Covington and Fort Avenue there is a Lucky’s Mart. Bring your own water bottle. It’s almost summer, stay hydrated!


There is usually a portapotty on the Randall side of the park. There is also a Giant a couple blocks away in the shopping center down Heath Avenue.

The rain date is Saturday, May 18. If there is inclement weather I will make an official call that will be posted in the Facebook event page at 11 AM on the 11th if we need to postpone till the next week.


If you have any questions, you can direct them at me, Mary Uncustomary England. I’m the organizer of this event and can be best reached via e-mail at [email protected]
Thank you for your support in making this event so wonderful. I can’t wait!!
