Under a hazy, pre-Frankenstorm moon, the 2012 Halloween Lantern Parade & Festival attracted thousands of costumed kids and families to Patterson Park Saturday night for a parade like none other in the city.
The afternoon included live music, hay rides and a children's lantern-making workshop. The parade included giant white mice on stilts, innumerable ghost and goblins, and several kickin' marching bands from Baltimore that put it all to drumming.
The band at the start of the above video, the Raya Brass Band, however, is from Brooklyn, New York. They happened to be in town to play the Glow Ball After-Party at the Creative Alliance.
