This year is proving to be quite eventful for 10/31 Consortium! Your Board of Directors has been hard at work planning the 2nd Annual Baton Rouge Halloween Parade, and we couldn’t be more proud of what we have accomplished!


In the past 3 months, we have narrowed down the parade theme, selected a Grand Marshal (will be announced this summer; you’re going to love it!), mailed out annual membership invoices (please send in your dues if you have not already done so), met with city officials regarding our NEW and LONGER route, participated in the 2nd Annual Irish Italian Parade, and started planning our next fundraiser, The Peanut Butter Cup Mini-Golf Tournament! Whew!


Last year, nearly 60 people joined us at Celebration Station for our first Peanut Butter Cup Mini-Golf Tournament. This is a fun and family oriented event that we are pleased to repeat. We hope to see you out on the mini-green on Thursday, May 31 at 6:30 p.m. The dress is casual, costume, or golf-tastic. Please contact if you are interested or purchase tickets or sponsorships online at our Peanut Butter Cup Eventbrite page.
