El Paso’s Halloween Parade Returns In 2022 To Scare Up Family Fun
El Paso's annual Halloween Parade returns to Album Park to enjoy some good family fun in October.
For the last 37 years, it's been a tradition for El Paso families to gather at Album Park for the annual Halloween parade hosted by our partner station KLAQ.
Last year alone, over 20,000 people celebrated the Halloween parade, blowing away previous attendance records even after skipping out in 2020 due to the pandemic.
Besides showing up in full costumes, thousands of El Pasoans made a full day out at the annual holiday, setting up complete picnics at Album Park. Meanwhile, others held family banquets with full-on hibachis and coolers full of ice-cold beverages along sidewalks and garage ports throughout the parade route.
This year will be no different as the annual free parade returns with festive, spooky Halloween fun in a family-friendly environment at Album Park on Halloween Day.
As usual, El Pasoans are encouraged to dress up while lining up along the route to enjoy the parade or participate in the Halloween Parade Costume Contest. Participants can also join in on the rock n' drive category, the business float category, or as walkers in the parade for a chance to win prizes.
Attendees who wish to enter the costume contests must sign up in advance or on the day of the parade. To register in advance and for complete details, visit KLAQ.com.
The annual Halloween parade also invites middle and high school bands, such as drum lines or small jazz bands, to participate. Interested schools may contact Connie Hernandez at 915-521-6300 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come October, don't miss out on one of El Paso's annual family fun traditions during the 37th Annual Halloween Parade.
The parade will begin at Album Park, heading west on Album to Cork, then left on Cork to Daphnie, and west on Daphnie to Fir. On Fir, the parade will turn left and head south on Bermuda, east to Zanzibar, north to Album Street, and right on Album back into the Album park.
