The 22nd Great Halloween Lantern Parade & Festival

Remerging from the pandemic cocoon like a mystical glowing butterfly is the 22nd Annual Great Halloween Lantern Parade & Festival! No need to check your eyes, you read that right, the Lantern Parade is back!! We’ll be marching in Patterson Park like days of yore at 7PM on Sat Oct. 23rd (rain date: Sun Oct. 24th) complete with magical illuminated floats, boisterous marching bands, stilt-walkers, and more!! Join us before the Parade for our Festival by the Pulaski Monument in Patterson Park where you can make your own lantern, eat delicious food, move your body to DJ rhythms, and peruse our Artist Market.

Attention families! Our annual Costume Contest is ON and we expect to see you and your kiddos dressed (and masked) in the spookiest, prettiest, and wildest costumes Baltimore has ever seen!! 

We will be taking all COVID precautions as necessary and are so excited to be able to spend this Baltimore Halloween tradition together again, in person! Our festival & parade will look a little different this year, but we are so happy to be making magic in Patterson Park with you all once again.
