The “Omotesando/Harajuku Hello Halloween Pumpkin Parade” is the “cute” alternative to the Kawasaki Halloween Parade targeted at kids. It takes place from 1pm – 2.30pm and registration is required in advance. This is available from 11am on Octobe 1st – we suggest you do this well ahead of time so you can turn up and enjoy the day with your certificate in hand!
