Photos from Davenport's Halloween Parade 2021

There is nothing I hate more than spooky dolls. Yuck.

This photo of Davenport looks like a scene from the movie Halloween Town.

Here is an awesome Beetlejuice parade float from last year.

This is what it looked like at night with its glowing lights.

This float has a dead theme with its casket and tombstones.

On the other side are the dead ghouls and ghosts.

This float made sure to load up on candy.
