L5P Festival

The Little Five Points Halloween Festival is a typically a day-long celebration of all things Hallo-weird but the 2020 event is a scaled down virtual event.

About Little 5 Points Halloween Festival and Parade

The much-anticipated fest is one of the city's best and packs Atlanta's eclectic neighborhood with music, food trucks, a killer artists market, tricks, treats, debauchery, and, of course, the annual parade featuring morbidly decorated floats carrying candy-tossing and music-playing ghouls through the streets of L5P. Throw on your best costume and get there early.

The famous parade, consistently locally and nationally ranked as one of the top Halloween events in the country, also serves as a fundraiser benefiting the Little 5 Business Association. With thousands of patrons flocking to the Little Five Points area, parking will be almost nonexistent. Take public transit, a ride-sharing service, or walk to get the most out of your festival experience, and wear a costume! EDITOR’S TIP: Due to massive overcrowding, get to the festival early and set up shop at your favorite Little Five Points establishment.

The Little Five Points Halloween Parade invaded Little Five Points on Saturday. Thousands of costumed and non-costumed Atlantans lined the streets of one of the city's most eclectic neighborhoods as an hour-long parade of floats sponsored by local groups, businesses, and people rolled through L5P.
