Molly's Halloween Parade Keeps Halloween Going Til Clock Strikes November
by Mary-Devon Dupuy
New Orleanians aren’t going to let a mid-week Halloween get in the way of their macabre merrymaking, and Jim Monaghan’s 17th Annual Molly’s Halloween Parade is the perfect venue for festive folks to party hard and still be in bed before everyone runs out of candy.
The fun starts at 6pm Wednesday, and includes a parade through the Quarter, a creative costume contest at Erin Rose, and marching krewes like New Wave along for the ride.
It’s too late to register for the parade, but the costume contest is open to all. According to Trey Monaghan, “Creativity is king. Anything goes, body paint is welcome, but it’s not just about being nude.”
To prove his point that scantily clad doesn’t translate to high marks from the judges, Monaghan also said last year’s first place winners were a couple of “I Dream of Jeannie,” lookalikes, one dressed as the genie herself and the other as Captain Nelson. The second place winner dressed as Tippi Hedren of The Birds, accessorizing with an operational mechanical bird.
Monaghan said there’s no reason to miss the “longest running Halloween parade,” in the city. Forces are gathering at Molly’s (1107 Decatur St.) at 6pm, leaving at 6:30 to stroll through the Quarter and make stops at The Erin Rose (811 Conti St.) via Decatur, then down Bienville and Burgundy.
While you’re at the Erin Rose, stop to refill your drink and participate in the costume contest before you walk down Bourbon Street on your way home to Molly’s. It’s too late to register to roll, but you can still join in the fun.
