Annual Halloween Parade

69th Annual  Halloween Parade

Disney Characters and Movies

On October 29th, we expect over 30,000 smiles and costumes lining Woburn’s Main Street for our 69th Annual Halloween Parade. On October 15th, children, runners, and walkers will participate in a great costume fun run at the Monster Dash and 401K. Scarecrows will be displayed throughout the town during the month of October for the Joyce Middle School Cubs’ Annual Scarecrow Contest. Our traditions of fun and fundraising for Massachusetts Lions Eye Research and Woburn Host Lions charities are only possible with your donation.

The donations from businesses like yours help to cover the cost of the parade and road races and allows the Woburn Host Lions to raise funds to support Massachusetts Lions Eye Research and many other local charitable organizations.

We know you are asked frequently for donations from many others, but we are hoping you will find our three premier events a worthy cause. We are happy to accept donations in any amount and there are special opportunities to donate and be recognized during and after our events. We have enclosed a flyer to show you your sponsorship opportunities. Upon receiving your donation, your name or logo and business link will be placed on the Woburn Host Lions website.

Parade Sunday

Mission Statement

The Woburn Host Lions Parade is for the enjoyment of the families and children of Woburn and surrounding communities while collecting funds the charities of the club.

The last Sunday in October is traditionally "Parade Sunday" in the City of Woburn. Over 80,000 people join together along Main Street to cheer the many fine bands, wave to the floats, catch up with old friends and celebrate the true spirit of Halloween. For a small town "Home Coming Day" feeling this is one fall event in New England that you don't want to miss out on.

Dress up your ghosts, goblins, Spidermen and princesses to join us at 1 o'clock, come rain or shine, on Main Street, Woburn. Arrive early to get a curbside view. Parade route starts at Crowne Plaza/Showcase Cinema travelling south on Main St to Woburn Center continuing onto Lake Ave at the Winchester line ending at Horn pond. The parade route is 2.2 miles long and normally takes just about 1.5 hours to walk the route end-to-end.

Please remember that our Lions Club utilizes this parade to raise money for the Massachusetts Lions Eye Research Fund. Your generous donations, large or small, are most welcome.
