Portsmouth is hosting the annual Halloween parade on Wednesday, October 31, 2018. This is the 24th year that the parade is held. It takes place in the streets of Downtown Portsmouth.

The Halloween parade is filled with volunteers who dress up in different costumes with groups to show off their creativity, and to entertain the public. One of the popular performances is done by a group that performs the Monster dance while on roller skates.

Hundreds of people come to participate in the fun including high school bands, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and community groups who volunteer. They gather at Peirce Island and anyone is encouraged to go.

If you are looking to dress up and have some fun join the groups down at Peirce Island to show off your creativity to the people of Portsmouth who line the streets of downtown.

Seven-year-old Gia Giordano is a Girl Scout and is looking forward to marching in the parade this year with her troop: “I like showing off our costumes, and seeing the other costumes in the parade, some are really funny, and some are really scary.”
