Krewe of Boo became the official Halloween Parade in New Orleans in 2007, and has been steadily growing in size. With floats constructed by Kern Studios, a local float-building company, the parade frightens folks of all ages. Kern artists design 3-D papier mâché and fiberglass props that mimic all of Halloween’s spooky creatures.

The Krewe of Boo Halloween parade begins at Elysian Fields in the Marigny and progress through the French Quarter, passing through N. Peters and Decatur Streets, to Jackson Square and then towards the Warehouse District, all the way up to the Convention Center. To get a sneak peek, see our GoNOLA video below.
