Halloween is a great entertaining holiday especially if you spend it at a high level.
Bellow you’ll find a collection of some of the best and most interesting Halloween parades in the world designed to offer you an unforgettable experience or at least some inspiration.
New York’s Village Halloween Parade
For almost 40 years, New York’s Village Halloween Parade has become a city’s ritual, the greatest Halloween manifestation in the world with over 50.000 participants every year. The finest artists are compelling their talent and energy in creating a world-class performance, a demonstration of boundless ingenuity, an explosion of greatness, a resource that revives every single sense. They make Halloween happen in New York better that anywhere in the world.
The London Dungeon
Over 1000 years of tumultuous history are displayed by great actors using spectacular effects in order to create the most terrifying event ever. Every room of this horror museum has a real story behind, which is explained by live scenes.
You will be witness of a dark past; you’ll meet Jack the Ripper killing Mary Jane Kelly and the others prostitutes; you’ll find yourself back in 17th century among heretics condemned by Mary Tudor, called also Bloody Mary; you will find out the story of Sweeney Todd, you will be scared to death in the Torture Chamber and you will spend a hell of a time in the other sections.
The main attraction this year is the newer Vengeance 5D, a supernatural experience that will blow your mind.
Samhain Halloween Parade in Dublin
In Downtown Dublin will take place an authentic pageant where costumed partakers will fallow Jack, carrying flashlights in pumpkins and passing the same streets as he does since he was trapped between the two worlds.
The entire event is covered by Irish traditions before being an amazing exhibition of performers, magicians, giants, ghosts, goblins and other frightening creatures.
The adventure will begin at O’Connell Street and will finish on top of Temple Bar with a prodigal fireworks blast that will push apart all the night creatures. As a bonus you can enjoy The Ghost Bus Tour of Dublin.
West Hollywood Halloween Carnival
The parade takes places along Santa Monica Boulevard, where are expected half a million people to join the largest Halloween manifestation in the world.
Called also Gay West Hollywood Halloween Carnival, the party is known as a gay friendly event but everybody is welcomed.
Live bands, DJs, celebrities, six performing stages, the most eccentric costumes ever, food vendors, artists-are all part of this magic world, a world of colors and energy where you will feel more alive than ever.
Hawaiian Halloween in Lahaina, Maui
After an absence of several years caused by the magnitude of the event that locals were not used to, the best Hawaiian Halloween manifestation is “Back on Front Street” in Lahania. Voted as one of the greatest streets in America, Front Street will be decorated once more in the spirit of Halloween and will host again over 50.000 participants. The main scheduled events are: the keiki parade (children’s), keiki ghost stories, costume contests, face painting, live music, and cruises. On October 31st, Halloween will be reinvented in Hawaii and promises to be enthusiastic, cheerful, huge and harmless.
