Baton Rouge Halloween Parade
October 19, 2019 at 4 p.m.
Downtown Baton Rouge, Louisiana
The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank leads this “parade with a purpose” and actively takes non-perishable food donations straight from the crowd. Parading krewes, dancers and bands entertain the crowd with incredible costumes and candy throws. The Baton Rouge Halloween Parade is a major fundraiser for 10/31 Consortium. Proceeds from the parade help further our initiatives of creating a safe and happy Halloween for the children in our community.
There are many ways to participate in the parade. These consist of a variety of krewe and unit types. A krewe is a group of people who want to be in the parade together for whatever reason. A unit is the physical entry, like a float or walking group. Registration prices vary depending on your krewe and unit types. Click the links below for more information on how to register.

The parade award categories are Best Float Decor, Best Dance Group (includes teams, students and troupes), Best Theme Representation, Best Throws, Most Fun, Scariest, Best Music, and Best Sucking up to the Judges! See the Halloween Parade Rules and Regulations for more info on how awards are judged.
No Krewe? No problem! Individual Walkers must dress according to categories as they will be grouped together with other Individual Walkers to form the semblance of a Walking Unit. This is a great way to make new friends and start your own krewe next year! Members can register as an Individual Walker for $15. Non members are subject to a 20% fee increase.
