2017 Findlay|Hancock County Halloween Parade


The 2017 Findlay|Hancock County Halloween Parade is packing up the candy and bringing it to your neighborhood.

With a successful 14-year run of entertaining and delighting thousands of kids (of all ages) in historic downtown Findlay, we decided to take the show on the road...a few blocks South.

After consulting with the City of Findlay, we mutually agreed it was necessary to move to a new location. This year's parade will now begin at the intersection of South Main Street & 6th Street/Lake Cascades Parkway, travel North on South Main Street, and conclude at Lima Street.

Participants will be contacted soon with updated staging locations and times. Everyone is advised to check back often for new information and updates.

Even though we are temporarily moving, ALL of us are committed to producing an exciting event - costumes, floats, marching bands and yes...plenty of candy for the kids.

See you on Tuesday!


The 2017 Halloween Parade presented by Hancock Leadership Alumni Association and Sponsored by Whirlpool will take place in downtown Findlay on Tuesday, October 24th at 7 pm. The parade is open to all Findlay and Hancock County groups, organizations, businesses, and schools.

Registration is open from September 10th through October 20th. You can receive an early bird discount of $10 by registering on or before October 10th. Registration options are available for businesses and non-profits. You may also choose to register as "Preferred Placement" which entiltes you to be one of the first 20 entries in the parade.

This year's event is going to bigger and better than ever, and we would like to invite you to be part of the fun and excitement. If you have any questions, please let us know.
