Halloween Parade Steps-Off Sunday Afternoon

Halloween Parade Steps-Off Sunday Afternoon
The lineup is set for the 2019 Allentown Halloween Parade!

The parade will step-off from the Allentown Fairgrounds on Sunday, October 13 at 2:00 p.m. It will proceed on 17th Street to Hamilton Street and will conclude at Ninth Street.

This year’s parade lineup is a diverse and exciting showcase of Allentown’s Halloween spirit! This year’s parade theme is “Harvest Fest,” so spectators should prepare for a host of scarecrows and fall harvest decorations parading through the city!

With ten youth and adult performing bands, the 2019 Allentown Halloween Parade brings an abundance of musical entertainment. The Allentown Hobo “Almost” Marching Band and the Allentown All-City Band are back again in 2019 in addition to the Allentown School District high school and middle school bands, and the Central Catholic and Parkland High School bands.

Parade spectators and participants are encouraged to use the Facebook and twitter tag “#hallentownparade” for the event.

Street closures will be in affect from 12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. along the parade route, including Hamilton Street and 17th Street, and other affected streets along the route. The recommended detour routes for east and west bound traffic are Liberty and Walnut streets.

The rain date for the parade is Sunday, October 20.
