SPOOKY
COUNCIL GROVE

Delighting ghosts and goblins alike, annually for 76 years, our Council Grove Halloween Costume Parade is a Flint Hills tradition, loved by visitors and locals alike. 

 

In 2022 our parade boasted more than 500 costumed kids and adults. This family-friendly event, led by our Council Grove Trail Trolley, is good, clean Halloween fun for all ages.

Join us Saturday, October 28th, 2023

for our 76th Annual Halloween Parade!

The festivities happen on the last Saturday in October. This year we have business Trick or Treating down Main Street, our Council Grove Recreation Department’s Halloween Glow Egg Hunt, a kids and families costume contest with professional photography courtesy of SisterAct Photography, and is capped off by a Halloween-themed movie at our Riverwalk Amphitheater.

Spooky Halloween is back, Saturday, October 28th, 2023 for its 76th year!
