Shows[edit | edit source]
- The 1997 show was based on the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. It also was said to be very similar to the previous year's parade, but added a float dedicated to The Lord of Darkness near the beginning. The show would start in Hollywood and end in New York, and it would do so until 2000.
- The 1998 parade had a float dedicated to Chucky and his Bride, but remained largely the same. The snakes float was also removed.
- The 1999 parade had a sacrifice float, a spider float, a rat float, and a Mummy float. Also, the snakes float was re-added. It was subtitled "The Season of the Witch".
- The 2000 parade added a Jack float and remained largely the same. It was subtitled "Bloody Playthings".
