Thriller and Halloween Festival postponed to next weekend at Masterson Station Park due to weather

Due to the weather, the Thriller & Halloween Parade and the Halloween Festival & Variety Show have been postponed and moved to next weekend at the fairgrounds at Masterson Station Park. The event will now take place on Sunday, Nov. 5. The expected rain and storms throughout the day necessitated not having the event tonight, due to challenges with setup, sound, performances, and potential safety concerns for attendees.

“While it’s unfortunate that the weather requires us to move dates and change locations for this year’s Thriller parade and Halloween festivities, this will be a unique opportunity for people to view the event at a new location – in Masterson Station Park,” said Monica Conrad, Director of Lexington Parks & Recreation. “Masterson Station Park has plenty of parking and space for us to host the 21st annual parade, and we look forward to people extending their spooky season a little and enjoying a fun event with us next weekend.”

The annual Thriller parade and Halloween Variety Show will be moved to the fairgrounds at Masterson Station Park, a popular destination for other large events such as Crave and the Bluegrass Fair. Local food and drink vendors will open at 2:30 p.m. The Halloween Variety Show featuring local performance groups will take place at 4 p.m., followed by the Thriller parade beginning at 5 p.m.
