Halloween is a big holiday in New Orleans and is getting bigger all the time. More and more people are decorating. This is some of the great decorations in the French Quarter this weekend with more to come. New Orleans is just a natural for this holiday. People just like to costume and this gives them another chance to do so.
This weekend was the Seafood Fest at Waldenberg Park. There was also a Blue’s Fest in Lafayette Square. The Voodoo Fest is on the way. It will run the weekend before at City Park on October 26,27, and 28th. People will stay the entire week to enjoy New Orleans and hopefully some fo best weather of the year.
The First New Orleans Hornets NBA game is October 31st with another one on Friday night. The big LSU-Alabama is on Saturday. That will put a lot of Bama fans in town. Maybe they will run into a ghost of the game. The New Orleans Saints play on Sunday against Philly. You can see that it will be a busy week or so.
Lafitte’s is one of the oldest bars in the United States and it will get busy at noon on Halloween and stay busy to the wee hours of the morning. The number one costume may be pirates as they have dress rehearsals monthly as it is.
There will also be several big movies shooting around that times as well. That always adds to the fun.
