the great halloween lantern parade!
Each year around Halloween, Patterson Park is host to a colorful procession of homemade lanterns. Tons of dressed up Baltimorians show up for the event to witness the parade, or to proudly carry their own lantern. This event is truly a homage to creativity, and imagination during such a corporate holiday. I had never even heard of this event until this year when a friend mentioned it to me. My roomie and I decided to go, and although we missed the beginning of the parade, the festivities afterward were well worth the trip.
I really want to be in the parade next year. Apparently there is no sign ups or obligations, you just show up and your in!
Here is some info about Patterson Park, where the parade took place and where there are many more fun bmore events.
