Anaheim Fall Festival & Halloween Parade
Saturday, October 27, 2018.

Plan to be in the Anaheim area on October 27, because you have to check out the Anaheim Fall Festival & Halloween Parade. It’s been a local tradition like no other since 1924! It’s a family-favorite Halloween event that draws crowds of nearly 50,000 people! You’ll love…

  • The parade that stretches 1.5 miles through downtown Anaheim’s darkened streets
  • The kiddie costume contest (for ages 12 and under)

The best part? The festival and parade are 100% volunteer-run and not for profit, which makes it even more special. Be sure to get there early and snag a good seat for the parade! There’s a reason this has become a seasonal favorite in So-Cal.
