San Diego's Biggest Costume Party!

College Area San Diego – October 25, 2014. The Boulevard BOO! Parade is returning to the College Area. This free, family event is bigger and spookier than ever! More floats, more zombies, more music and more surprises. More of what makes the Boulevard BOO! Parade San Diego's only Halloween Parade.

The College Area Business District is thrilled to announce that it will be partnering with Upbeat Parade Productions for the 2013 parade. With twenty-five years of parade experience this introduces a new and exciting addition to the BOO! Parade.

With the economic challenges of the past few years the College Area Business District decided to eliminate the BOO! Carnival from the overall event. The new direction will be on the parade. "It was a difficult decision to make. But we are excited to be moving forward with Upbeat Parade Productions." says Executive Director, Jennifer Finnegan.
