The 2023 Theme is: Upside/Down : Inside/OUT!

In the last few year’s we have seen our world turn UPSIDE/DOWN and we all went INSIDE–not just inside to our apartments and houses, but inside ourselves.

For a while it felt like we were living between two worlds! Now is is time to come OUT into that new world –but, now that we have had time to reflect on it–what do we want to come out AS?

Are we the same or have we changed? And, then take that to your costume self!!!!

WHO or WHAT do we most NEED and WANT to be on Halloween 2023! How do we return to innocence after experience? Do we? Can we? Should we?

The Halloween Parade has always been a night of transformation, but this topsy turvy year feels even more-so in terms of realizing a dream, being who you are most authentically in your imagination.

Come on OUT on Halloween and show us your dreamiest self!

Remember: You have to sleep in order to wake up!

Hallelujah Halloween!
