  • Zombie Walk and Halloween Parade

    By Halloween Eve

    In Toronto, and in the city's unofficial gay neighborhood, Halloween is huge. The roads are closed off and thousands of people pour onto the streets in a frenzy of celebration, partying until morning.

  • Banks of the Foyle Carnival

    In Derry, Ireland over 50,000 Derry residents take to the streets in costume. Those who are not dressed up are refused at any of the pubs or bars nearby.

  • Salem Witches' Halloween Ball

    By Halloween Eve

    This might be the spookiest event ever and it of course takes place in Salem. Hundreds and hundreds of people march to Salem, where fires burn and witches cast spells on whatever they please!

  • The Toms River Parade

    This one is in New Jersey and it's the second biggest in the world, after the Village Parade. Here, you'll find waves of enthusiasts rocking down the streets, making noise and having a great time.

  • The West Hollywood Halloween Carnival

    This parade takes place in California, along Santa Monica Boulevard. It prides itself on being the most gay-friendly parade in the world and everybody is welcome (and costumed)!

  • Samhain Halloween Parade

    Back to Ireland now, and this time the capital city. The Dublin streets turn mad each year as Dubliners follow "Jack" while carrying lanterns and pumpkins.
