The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank's annual Halloween parade rolled in downtown Baton Rouge, Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019. Non-perishable food donations were taken straight from the crowd in the 'parade with a purpose,' a part of the 10/31 Consortium's Saturday events that included 'Halloween Town,' with bands, games, face painting, pumpkin decorating and food, as well as an early-morning 'Pumpkin Pi' 3.14 mile foot race on the Mississippi River levee. The parade is the main event in 10/31 Consortium's 'Fifolet Halloween Festival,' which has events through Oct. 31. The Fifolet (fee-foh-lay), a part of Cajun folklore, is a magical and mischievous blue flame that appears deep in the Louisiana swamp; legend says following it will lead you to buried treasure.
