Musician and New Orleans resident Ani Difranco once said Every day is Halloween in New Orleans because the culture is so rich in costume and diversity all year round, but the month of October is particularly amazing in NOLA. Find the best Halloween events New Orleans has to offer. Spooky activities include: haunted tours, street parties, parades and familyfriendly options.
THE MORTUARY is an icon of old New Orleans at the very dead end of world famous Canal Street. Less than 3 miles from the enchanting French Quarter on the cemetery streetcar line, this magnificent mansion was originally built in 1872 and operated for about 80 years as an actual MORTUARY. With a seemingly endless amount of haunted attractions, Scout Island Scream Park is the ultimate Halloween festival.
Spread across 50 acres within New Orleans City Park and created by the same people behind the Mortuary, this fright zone is the cantmiss scary experience of the season. But this particular Halloween gave New Orleans more than enough to worry about, so I think for now the joy on display on State Street and elsewhere is worth supporting on its own merits.
At any rate, thanks for a thoughtprovoking comment. Many vendors and shops along Decatur Street and at the farmers market will be participating.
