Kicking off O.C.toberfest is the Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade! This parade will begin at 1 pm on October 19 and start on the boardwalk near North Division Street.

During the parade, there will be lots of prizes and fun surprises and participation is FREE! The Worcester Humane Society will be onsite accepting donations of pet supplies or monetary donations during the event, plus there might even be a few furry friends with them up for adoption!

Starting at 26th Street and Baltimore Ave. at 3 pm, this parade features cars decorated for Halloween cruising the boards towards the Inlet! Participating cars will end their drive at North Division Street, where Trunk or Treating will begin around approximately 3:30 pm!
