New Orleans is a town that is known for its rambunctious festivities and what the city has to offer for Halloween is no different. Combining New Orleans’ rich history of haunts and voodoo with the holiday seems to come easy for spooky entrepreneurs and there are tons of things to do for a creepy October.
All Hallows’ Eve, the night when the veil between the supernatural and physical worlds is most transparent and spirits roam the night, gaining their vengeance before moving on. Hence why we dress in costume, so that those spirits can’t recognize us and we can survive to celebrate All Saints’ Day (much like we celebrate Mardi Gras so that we can survive Lent). In a city widely known for its haunted history, we celebrate our spirits in ways that other cities strive to match. While almost everywhere else in the United States Halloween is a night of trick-or-treating for the kiddos, but here we do things differently.
