About the Event
Welcome to our 2nd Annual Wynnum Halloween parade supported by Brisbane City Council and Ampol. After learning from our first year running the parade we have changed a few things and added some fun! We have added Sideshow rides this year along with more entertainment and a main stage. The Halloween Parade will be bigger and better plus we have entertainment pre and post parade on our Main Stage! AND enjoy the Markets & a variety of foods from local vendors and Food Trucks.
