Halloween Costume Parades you Shouldn’t Miss in the Bay Area

Halloween is a great time to show off your creative and artistic side through your costume! Many dress up as famous horror movie characters like Michael Myers from Halloween while others dress up as iconic figures like Michael Jackson in his Thriller outfit. Some people love the idea of pretending to be someone else for one night. And one of the best events to go to show off your costume is at the many Halloween Costume Parades in the Bay Area!
