Georgia Area Has One Of The Best Halloween Parades In The U.S.
The fall season is certainly one of the most festive times of the year. Now, in the coming weeks, children (and adults) will be dressing up in their best costumes. To recognize this fun, USA Today‘s 10Best published a report of the best Halloween parades across the county and a Georgia area made the list.
“Some of the biggest Halloween parades across the country attract locals and visitors alike to see spooky magic happen or simply march along in the fun,” 10Best explains.
What constitutes a great Halloween parade? Of course, it must be filled with kids. Sure, parents enjoy dressing up, but most Halloween parades are about the excitement of youth. There’s not a kid on earth who does not love getting compliments on how great their costume is. Furthermore, try to pay attention to how you deliver the question, “What are you supposed to be?”
Though Halloween parades all have their standard components, there are also variations that make each one unique to their city or community. Some bring in the most decorative jugglers, or haunted costumes for guests to marvel (or scream) at. Others allow the kids to be the main attraction, walking down the street. Regardless, it goes without saying there must be an abundance of candy.
In Georgia, one of the best Halloween parades in the area is coming up this weekend.
Little 5 Points Halloween Festival and Parade – Atlanta
On October 21 and 22, this two-day “spooktacular” takes place. The Little 5 Points Halloween Festival and Parade has a 3D haunted house, live music, and of course, a thrilling parade. According to their official website, this is the biggest Halloween celebration in the southeast.
Specifically for the kids, there is a monster sticker hunt on Saturday. Then, the parade is at 2 pm on Sunday. “Expect a lot of creativity everywhere,” 10Best states. This includes ghost tours and “boo-ze” crawls for the adults.
