The 10/31 Consortium's Fifolet Halloween Festival kicked off Saturday with the Baton Rouge Halloween Parade downtown.

Volunteers with the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank collected food as they walked the parade.

The event also featured Halloween Town, with bands, games, face painting, pumpkin decorating and food, as well as a morning Pumpkin Pi foot race on the Mississippi River levee.
