It’s the 9th year for this favorite Halloween tradition! Come to Grant Park on Friday, November 1st to walk in the 2019 Lantern Parade. This is the parade’s rain date — it was originally scheduled for October 25th.
The event is FREE to participate in and attend. It takes place from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m.
At the lead will be the Black Sheep Ensemble, with giant puppets and goblins. The Wasted Potential Brass Band will bring up the rear. And professional deejay Tabone will be on hand to spin tunes for dancing after the parade.
