Boo Carré

Over the weekend, I went to the first annual Boo Carré Halloween and Harvest Festival in the French Quarter. It had everything from: picking pumpkins, trick-or-treating, and dancing to live music; encountering vampires, Mardi Gras Indians, Living History Project zombies; there were ghost tours and scavenger hunts, a vampire film festival, and even a mock-Funeral Procession; you could view a harvest fashion show/costume contest, sip cider while sitting on a bale of hay in the French Market, or watch pumpkin carvers prepare for the pumpkin procession (where wagons and carriages delivered carved and decorated pumpkins from the Farmers Market to Washington Artillery Park for a lighting on the steps across from Jackson Square). Lots to choose from and it was three full days of spooky Fall'ish events!
