The Highlands Louisville Halloween Parade & Festival brings Trick-or-Treats to the Streets this Saturday!

Louisville Halloween Parade & Festival

Join us on Saturday, Oct. 8 for a family friendly day of Halloween merriment in the Highlands!

Recently included as Number Seven on the list of the Top Ten Halloween Parades in the U.S. by the Travel Channel, the Highlands Louisville Halloween Parade marches through the heart of the Highlands from the corner of Baxter Ave and Broadway down to Bardstown Rd and Rosewood on Saturday, Oct 8 at 4 PM.

The new date and time are the results of an extensive survey and logistics research with goals of providing a better experience with regards to traffic, safety and attendee satisfaction. In addition to the centerpiece parade, there will also be a daylong Halloween Street Festival that starts at 12PM on Baxter Ave from Bardstown Rd to Hepburn. The festival will run until 8PM that evening featuring a variety of vendors, live bands, makeup and jack-o-lantern carving demos and a couple of spooky surprises.
