Awaiting Dates for 2021
With over 2,000 entrants, you’d better have a damn good costume.!
The Northalsted Halloween Parade is on Halloween every year from 6pm-10pm.Chicagoans bring out their weird, wild and spooky every year in Boystown.
A wonderful cross-section of Chicago converges in Boystown for the Northalsted Halloween Parade each year. From drag queens to kids to pets, this annual Boystown event inspires some of the most stunning costumes in Chicago. So make sure you swing by the costume store beforehand!
Marching in and attending the parade is free, but you’ll have to register if you want to march or perform in the parade. The costume contest is also free, but with over 2,000 entrants, you’d better have a damn good costume.
A pre-party during the costume registration at Circuit gets things going early, the new route going south from Waveland and ending at Belmont means more space and our legendary costume contest has some star power this year… It is certainly a night not to be missed
The parade will be starting at 7 p.m, with a pre-party and costume registration from 4 to 6 p.m. at Circuit Nightclub, located at 3641 N Halsted, just south of Waveland where the new parade route kicks off.
