Last year, more than 30,000 spectators attended the event, and larger crowds are expected for the 2024 edition.

The parade brings together a mix of favourites from previous years such as giant puppets and inflatable creatures, as well as exciting music, new dance acts, and entertainment designed to thrill audiences.

The Southend Halloween Parade serves as not just a spectacle, but also offers an opportunity for the community to participate.
