It’s finally starting to feel like Fall in New Orleans. Now is the perfect time to attend some outdoor fall festivals. Big Easy Limos can get you and your family to your favorite fall festivals without you having to worry about finding parking or about getting around the ever-lasting constructions projects in the city. Here a few events you may want to check out:
Krewe Of Boo Halloween Parade
On October 19th, the Krewe of Boo, New Orleans’ Official Halloween Parade, rolls through the French Quarter. It starts in the Marigny, rolls through the French Quarter and ends in the Warehouse District. Halloween themed floats with over 400 riders tossing local goodies, 30 marching groups and costume fun are some of what you can expect to enjoy.
This spooktacular Halloween event is unlike any other parade in the world and parades through the “BOO CARRÉ”. It became the official Halloween Parade in New Orleans in 2007. The beautifully horrific props and sculptures start with talented Kern artists, sketching creative images for the unique Krewe of BOO! Once approved by Brian Kern’s discerning eye, the images “come to life” as 3-dimensional fiberglass or papier mache props that excite and frighten parade goers with their imaginative artistic style. Kern Studios is the premier float building organization in America, and the Kern quality rolls in celebrations throughout the world. The thrill of riding amongst the monsters and eerie creatures in the Krewe of BOO!is an exhilarating experience you’ll always remember.
