Downtown Davenport Map with Halloween Parade Route and Road Closures.

October 28, 2021 - Downtown Davenport will be filled with ghouls and goblins this Saturday, October 30 as the City’s annual Halloween parade kicks off at 6:30 p.m. from 3rd Street and Pershing Avenue. The parade will head west on 3rd Street, turning south onto Ripley before heading east on 2nd Street and ending at Iowa Street. Spectators are encouraged to dress up in their favorite costumes and bring a bucket for candy!
The City of Davenport expects over 60 entries in this year’s nighttime parade. A wonderful mix of youth groups, businesses, school-based organizations, and non-profits will travel the parade route with decorated floats, vehicles of all sizes, and costumes of all kinds.  
Residents and visitors are encouraged to review the road closure and parking map before heading downtown. Several downtown streets will be closed early in preparation for the parade. 

Beginning at 4:00 p.m., the Redstone and River Center ramps are accessible via Brady Street only.  The public is encouraged to utilize the Redstone and River Center ramps as the Harrison Street parking ramp will not be accessible after 4:00 p.m. Parking will be free in the parking ramps from 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Free parking is also available in several parking lots south of River Drive as indicated on the map. 

Parade spectators are asked to use parade designated restrooms located in the lower level of the Harrison Street ramp (Ripley Street side) and the restrooms on the north side of the RiverCenter. 
Many wonderful downtown businesses will be open before, during, and after the parade. Grab a bite to eat at your favorite restaurant, shop one of the many unique boutiques, stop for a drink, or grab a hot cup of coffee while visiting. There is something for everyone! We encourage all to enjoy an evening full of fun dressed in costumes with friends and family.
Don’t forget, Davenport’s City-wide trick-or-treat is Sunday, October 31 4:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.!
