Some 2,200 people joined the 2018 Halloween Parade in the city of Kawasaki, south of Tokyo, on Sunday, making it the largest in the history of a Halloween parade itself said to be the largest in Japan.

Under the excited eyes of around 120,000 onlookers parade participants took to the streets southeast of Kawasaki Station to dance, strut and shuffle around the 1.5-km parade route, part of the city’s greater Kawasaki Halloween celebrations for 2018.

Setting off at staggered intervals from the Kawasaki Le FRONT shopping center, Sunday’s paraders were separated into groups covering four costume themes — “Near Futuristic Costume & Dance,” “Zombie & Horror,” “Street Culture & Dance,” and “Drag Queen & Sexuality-Free Party.”

This year was the 22nd anniversary of the Kawasaki Halloween Parade which first hit the streets in 1997 when around 150 people joined the fun cheered on by around 500 visitors.

Parade proceedings had a marked international flavor about them this year with organizers providing multi-language information points for foreign visitors as well as setting aside a special parade viewing area which could be booked in advance by those arriving from overseas.
