Kichijoji Halloween Parade

10:00am – 6:00pm
Free

An event focusing on the little ones, this spooky parade is more adorable than terrifying, with cute-costumes galore. Held ‘by mothers for mothers’ it’s all organised by a local family-led committee and is all about parades and trick or treating.

On both days there will be a sweet rally with participating local stores fulfilling the trick-or-treat highlight of Halloween. Parents can choose the shops from a list of 32 in advance, selecting either the five-store option (¥850) or the ten-store one (¥850).

This year there will be three parades to choose from – all taking place on the 30th: a Fancy Dress Parade from 1.50pm-2.45pm, a Masquerade-parade from 2.50pm-3.45pm and a Costume Parade from 3.40pm until 16.50pm. Note that the three begin from different areas – leaving from Kopisu Kichijoji, Heiwa Street Bus Stop and Inokashia Park’s Outdoor stage, respectively. They suggest the youngest participants take place in the first one (it’s shorter) while elementary school kids can take part in the final one as it begins after school.

To take part in the parade, you must pay the registration fee and select your parade and sweet shops in advance – it costs ¥1,300 for a parade and five sweet shops, or ¥2,200 for a parade and ten sweet shops.

Of course the event is free for observers so if you love cute kids in Halloween costumes, this is the one for you.
