Outer Banks Halloween Parade of Costumes
The Outer Banks Halloween Parade is held annually on the Sunday before Halloween in Nags Head, North Carolina!
The 4th Annual Outer Banks Halloween Parade returns to Kelly’s in Nags Head on Sunday, October 29, 2017, starting with the pre-parade kick off party at 2pm, with the walking parade itself beginning at 3pm, to be immediately followed by the Awards Ceremony for the best costumes.
The largest Halloween celebration on the Outer Banks, this free, family friendly event includes trick-or-treating, special surprise guests, live entertainment, and of course Dare County’s ultimate costume contest.
The annual Halloween Parade is the culminating event of HalloWeek on the Outer Banks, following the 2nd Halloween International Film Festival, featuring independent films of all genres from around the world, including many filmed in North Carolina and even here locally, as well as special guest filmmakers in attendance for Q&A panels and meet-and-greets with fans. (For more information on the film festival and submission details, please click here.)
Admission to this rain or shine event is free for anyone wearing a Halloween costume.
The mission of the Parade of Costumes is to provide a safe and positive celebration of Halloween and its traditions, for Outer Banks locals and visitors alike, and Halloween lovers worldwide, with live entertainment and loads of fun for adults and kids of all ages.
