Halloween Parade

Tuesday, October 31, 11 a.m.– 3 p.m.

Happy Halloween!

Join us for a day of costumes, crafts, treats and a Halloween Parade, led by First Lady of North Carolina, Kristin Cooper.

Come in costume and participate in fun "Halloween-y" crafts. Crafts will take place from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. 

Lunch will be available for purchase from So Good Pupusas food truck from 11 a.m.–2 p.m., which will be parked on Edenton Street, next to the museum. Cookies from Sweet Cherry Bakery and doughnuts from Krispy Kreme Doughnuts will be available to the earliest attendees!

The Halloween Parade will begin at 2 p.m., at the top of Bicentennial Plaza (between the North Carolina Museum of History and North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences). Led by First Lady Kristin Cooper and the Helping Hand Mission Band, participants will march down the plaza, take a right on Jones Street and then take a left on Blount Street ending at the Governor's Mansion. There, they will be rewarded with candy from Lowes Foods!

In addition to crafts in the lobby, the fire department will be here talking about safety on Halloween and also passing out free glow in the dark hats for children. They will also have a fire truck on site for kids to take a tour!
