Baltimore has its fair show of awesome Halloween happenings around town all throughout the month of October.  From the spooky and paranormal to the party-centric and family-friendly, there are Halloween events for everyone from all walks of live in and around Baltimore.

One of the most notable events is the Great Big Halloween Parade of Light and Luminaria at Patterson Park in Canton.  Going down on Saturday, October 29, this free Halloween event will be coordinated by artist and director, Laure Drogoul who's whimsical humor and visionary sensibility is sure to bring an awesome, fun touch to the parade.

People are encouraged to donate old plastic bottles for workshops Drogoul and friends will teach.  These workshops will teach you how to make glowing luminaria animals out of your bottles for this year's parade theme, Wildlights Wildlife.

In addition, the parade will feature stilt walkers, illuminated floats, live music, surprise performances, and more.

Kids and adults alike are encouraged to dress up for the Great Big Halloween Parade of Light & Luminaria.  It all kicks off with a pre-parade Fall Festival beginning at 3 p.m. where you can create these luminaria, enjoy hayrides, food, scarecrow stuffing, and other Halloween related attractions.

Parade participants will gather at the Pulaski Monument in Patterson Park at 6:30 p.m. and start their trek throughout the beautiful park at 7 p.m.
