Baton Rouge Halloween Parade: The 6th Annual Baton Rouge Halloween Parade is a Halloween celebration, an event for the entire community and an opportunity to support the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank with non-perishable donations. This year's parade is getting all glammed up with a "Candy Wishes and Halloween Dreams" theme and will be lead by our very own Jay Grymes as Grand Marshall.
The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank truck will be the first unit in the parade and will be accepting of non-perishable food items from parade goers along the route.
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.
