Halloween time is nearing.  It’s a time where spooky and silly costumes come into the light and children parade the neighborhood, while adults attend trendy parties. Forget about carving jack o’ lanterns, and head to one of the many Halloween parades taking place throughout the US this October 31st.

One of the oldest Halloween parades in the country is the Rutland Country Festival. Since 1960, it is one of the major attractions of the town and lasts for three days. Floats, marching bands and costume competitions are the highlight of the event. The festival doesn’t officially begin until after dark, at around 6:30 PM.

The Big Apple is also into the Halloween festivities. Running for almost 40 years, The New York Village Halloween Parade is one of the most beloved Halloween festivals in the United States.  Featuring floats, dancers and bands, one of the main perks behind the festival is that you can participate in the parade with the rest of the party-goers. It certainly has grown in recent years as more than 2 million people showed up last year for the one-night only party.

The Anoka parade in Minnesota prides itself on being the “Halloween capital of the world”. Indeed, it was one of the first parades in the US, starting in 1920 and is still going strong.  Not content with one parade, there are actually several parades taking place during the 11 day festival, the main one being the Grand Parade on October 30th. If you’re not into parades, there are other attractions as well such as pumpkin carving competitions, a Halloween bonfire and a competition of schoolchildren costumes.
