Fifolet Halloween Festival

October 26

The capital area’s favorite Halloween-mongers are back, 10/31 Consortium brings back its beloved slate of hilarious and haunting events.

Kick things off with a streak of dastardly do-gooding, by donating gently used Halloween costumes and (store-bought, individually-wrapped) candy to ensure that all of the little monsters can have their day on the streets. The Fifolet Costume and Candy Drive will be held from September 1–October 20 at locations all over Greater Baton Rouge. On October 22, the Main Library at Goodwood will host the Costume Giveaway Day, during which any child in need of a costume can receive one for free while supplies last.

The hallowed weekend itself brings its own set of festivities, starting with the Fifolet Hallween Festival Pub Crawl on October 26, a “zombie horde in search of booze and brains”. Shuffle along to the bars on 3rd Street in Downtown Baton Rouge, souvenir cup in hand. Participants will receive special drink discounts, and plenty of opportunities to win prizes along the way. Free zombie makeup will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis one hour before the crawl. 7 pm. $40.

The Fifolet Hallween Ball—a full-on Monster Mash—takes place on October 27 at the Lod Cook LSU Alumni Center. Live music will be provided by Petty Betty. Costumes, of course, encouraged. 8 pm–11:55 pm. $40; $60 for individual seating.

Saturday, October 28, brings the height of the celebrations—starting with a 5K (hope you didn’t drink too much of the previous night’s potions). Run it in a costume, or while carrying a pumpkin. 8 am. $15 for Fun Run; $25 for 5K; $35 for Pumpkin 5K. Starts at Riverfront Plaza—where the Arts Market will be well underway, offering plenty of artisan wares and live entertainment for the whole family. Plus, a pumpkin pie eating contest and a pumpkin carving contest. All will conclude with the annual Halloween Parade, featuring local krewes and businesses showcasing their weirdest ideas, and bestowing treats upon all. Starts at 4 pm in downtown Baton Rouge.
