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 Halloween festival, featuring an adorable kids costume contest, lantern making, pop-up performances, an arts & crafts market, and more. Local food trucks and a beer garden provide a place for families and friends spread a picnic blanket and enjoy the afternoon.

Once the sun sets, the magic begins. 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!!
