The parade begins at 2 p.m. on the corner of Government and St. Phillip and goes around the curve to head north on River Road. It then rolls east on Convention, north on 7th, west on Main, south on 5th, west on Laurel, and ends at River Road.
This event is for our entire community, therefore we have 2 party zones where the route crosses 3rd Street, a no alcohol zone on Convention between 5th and 7th, and a no scare zone on 7th between Convention and Laurel.
We are glamming it up this Halloween with our "Candy Wishes and Halloween Dreams" theme (a play on the tagline from Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous) submitted by Roxanne Leachman! Bring the kids because we're going to make it rain candy in Downtown Baton Rouge!
Due to the devastating flooding damage in the Greater Baton Rouge Area, it is very likely that the Halloween Parade will be the only FREE way for children in our community to celebrate Halloween. Neighborhoods may not be in the best condition for Trick or Treating, and many homes may still be vacant. Additionally, the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank flooded and lost their facility. The food bank truck is the first unit in the parade and they actively take donations straight from the crowd. This is a critical time for the food bank and they need our support. Please help us give our kids the Halloween fun they deserve, and restock the food bank shelves by putting on a great parade that will certainly bring large crowds
