In this parade, Mickey Mouse hosts a fun Halloween fair with a warm and homey, country atmosphere. His Disney pals are all dressed up in unique costumes to match the theme of the seven floats. There’s a bandstand, a sweets shop, a game booth, a mysterious pumpkin house, a laboratory with gigantic pumpkins, a picnic area and a musical revue theater – all the fun elements of a Halloween fair. All kinds of pumpkin characters appear on the floats, with a cute troupe of little pumpkins performing a line dance on the theater float. When the parade stops, the Disney pals and other performers begin a fun dance involving the Guests and raising the level of fun.
