Halloween is not widely celebrated in Sweden but a festival this weekend is trying to bring some of the spooky fun to Stockholm.

American Bill Schacht is organizing the fourth annual Shockholm festival, which features a Halloween parade around the capital with people wearing costumes.

Schacht says he came up with the idea for the celebration after missing the annual parade in his hometown of New York City.

"When I moved to Sweden I said this is a great town with a lot of creativity but it would be so much nice if we could get this Halloween parade thing going

The parade kicks off at 3 p.m. Saturday from Kungsträdgården.
