Brilliant and Epic Halloween Parades in New Jersey

Searching for a New Jersey Halloween Parades near me? 

Let Jersey Family Fun help! We do the hard work so you don’t have to. We know many kids love the joy of marching in a neighborhood Halloween parade around their community. Kids march in Halloween costumes. Floats toss candy and treats. What’s not to love? We get it and over the past few years we’ve seen more and more New Jersey towns add a Halloween parade to their local Halloween events.

In 2020, just like we did with New Jersey Trunk or Treats we decided to make it easier than ever to help our readers find Halloween Parades in their New Jersey communities, by listing them all in one place.

Town by town, conversations are going on about whether or not to have the parades and if they have them can they do it safely. We’ll go through all of our listing multiple times between now and Halloween to monitor the status of Halloween parades. The work parade organizers are doing is not easy. Please be patient with them. If your parade has been cancelled or is suddenly cancelled on short notice, understand the decision was not done lightly and may have been completely out of their hands.

If it turns out your Halloween parade is canceled and there is not one local to you, check out our guide to New Jersey Halloween Activities to find alternate Halloween activities you can do with your kids.

Below you’ll find our listing of New Jersey Halloween Parades organized by region. For each one, we’ll tell you the name of the parade and the date and its current status. We encourage you to click the link for each parade event to find out more details such as the address, if registration is required for participants, and if there’s an alternate date in the event of rain. Keep in mind too, that some Halloween parades may have special requirements to participate.
