Each year the seaport town of Portsmouth fully embraces the spirit of Halloween, from the fall foliage, to scarecrows displayed across the city, and let’s not forget the iconic Halloween parade; it’s one of the best times of year to visit Portsmouth.
The main event, the Portsmouth Halloween parade, is a grassroot, all-inclusive celebration of community, creativity, and free expression. Everyone is welcome to dress up and march. The parade makes its way through downtown Portsmouth each year on Halloween, October 31 at 7 p.m. You can see the full parade route here.
Hundreds of participants march in costume and thousands cheer from the sidelines. It’s always an unforgettable night that you won’t want to miss! Book your trip to Portsmouth today!
