Yes, I want to make a donation, but I don’t need a reward.


Remember your donation is tax deductible as we are a 501c3 not-for-profit arts organization. The Halloween Parade is the largest grass roots event in the nation and what keeps it alive are its supporters who make it possible for us to continue this longstanding tradition of free expression and creativity. Your donation keeps the streets open, helps build and animate the Giant Puppets, keeps the bands playing and the revelers reveling.

I don’t want to donate, I just want to buy a tee or a poster click HERE.
