We'll be in New Orleans for Halloween due to a wedding we're attending on November 1st. Was wondering if there were any kid friendly festivals or events going on in the New Orleans area. I found the Boo at the Zoo event but that's only on October 24th - 26th.

Any recommendations is appreciated!

Thanks!

I can't think of anything, but then again it's been a while since I've had a little kid to do anything with. Have you asked your hosts for any suggestions? Perhaps they can offer to take/direct you to a neighborhood to trick-or-treat with the kids and a few haunted houses. I can suggest Jumenville here in St. Bernard as a nice neighborhood to trick-or treat in and it's a straight drive from Rampart St.; it's a 15-20 min. drive. Best wishes what ever ya'll end up doing !

Yes, our hosts are thinking of some recommendations, however they now live in Houston and just returning to get married in New Orleans so are also out of touch with what's happening there lately.

Thanks for the recommendation on the neighborhood! Definitely a start and now an option

Any others have ideas or areas?

Thanks!!

Characters come to life at our non-scary Halloween celebration. Featuring games, entertainment, and hay rides.--- call and check to see that this is going on

There is also a Halloween Parade- I have never been so I am not sure if it is family friendly. I would assume so b/c it is put on by Blaine Kern- you can google that

There is a neighborhood on the Westbank of NO- about 15 minutes from NO that blocks off the neighborhood completely for what reminds me of a block patrty- there are some DJ's and bands. We have nearly 1000 trick or treaters a year- let me know if you want more info
Hope this helps
