Happy Halloween! Grab your best costumes because today in New Orleans, there are plenty of spooky ways to celebrate. It’s day 2 of Voodoo Experience, and The Sugar Mill is hosting Hell’s Gala. It’s the 20th Annual Halloween Parade at Molly’s at the Market. If you’re into vampires, consider checking out the annual Ann Rice conference, UnDead Con, at the Hilton Garden Inn! On this day in 1985, Hurricane Juan made his first of two stops in Louisiana, causing days-worth of torrential downpours. With this hurricane season on its way out, check out more frightful happenings this All Hallows’ Eve.
Anyone who ventured downtown last night can confirm that the Halloween festivities have hit a fever pitch. With the start of Voodoo Fest, costuming, consumption, and concerts are nearing peak levels. But, what about of those of us stuck in an office? Despair not! In 2015, the music will be live-streamed.
