Galena Halloween Parade 2021

Galena Halloween Parade

The 2021 Galena Halloween Parade didn’t disappoint!  The 42nd annual event was presented by the Galena Chamber.   

The annual event brings in over 30,000 people to Galena’s historic downtown and is one of Illinois’ largest!  Many families dress up, bring their children, and line the streets for the 90 minute parade.  Numerous local high school bands perform along with business floats and the warmth of the hot air balloons (minus the balloons).

I was very fortunate to have a wonderful vantage point to photograph the parade.  The new owners of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory let me sit in their second floor window.  Lu Lu’s and Galena Candle & Bath Company offered their buildings but found business signs in my line of sight.  A HUGE thank you to these three businesses for sharing!
