Halloween is almost here. Do you have plans? We’re celebrating Saturday night and going to the Krewe of Boo parade in the French Quarter. Hope you’ll join us.
The parade rolls at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and audience costumes are encouraged. Riders throw Louisiana-specific items like pralines and voodoo doll pins. The riders don’t throw beads, but they do throw:
- candy made in the USA
- Pralinettes from Aunt Sally’s (made in New Orleans)
- PJs Coffee Frac Packs (made in New Orleans)
- Carmel Corn bags and Chee Wees bags from Elmer’s Fine Foods (made in New Orleans)
- Zydeco sweet potato nutrition bars (Louisiana made)
- Candy corn necklaces (handmade in New Orleans)
- Voodoo doll pins (handmade in New Orleans)
- Voodoo doll magnets (handmade in New Orleans)
- Stuffed animals, frisbees, cozies, toys and games
The route runs from the Quarter down to Mardi Gras World off Convention Center Boulevard (full route). We’re meeting at 6 at the Anthrolopogie landing at the corner of Iberville and North Peters. We’ll find a prime spot from there. Send us an email so we’ll know to save you a spot: newinNOLAblog@gmail.com
The krewe afterparty is at Mardi Gras World and is open to the public ($25 admission). There will be a cash bar (more info).
Here are photos from past parades. Here’s a video of what to expect:
