THE KRAMPUS PARADE
The Krampus Parade spectacle takes place within the aisles of the market and is led by demon drummers. Kids attending the market can follow the Krampi by holding onto chains at the end of the line. The parade features Krampi that are created by our contributors & sponsors, House Of Torment, Bat City Scaregrounds and Hawgfly Productions. Along with sponsored Krampi, we welcome the public to enter with their own Krampus creations and join the parade for free. This is one of our biggest attractions at the market. Get your cameras ready and enjoy this most ancient of Christmas traditions.
HOW TO ENTER
There is no fee to enter. We ask all Krampi to pre-register so we can get an idea of the size of the parade. You can show up the day of the parade without registering online by 1:30pm. Click the RULES & FULL INFO for more details and to read the full rules. Whether you pre-register or show up, you must arrive in costume and ready to walk.
