Halloween Fun in New Orleans

There’s no better place to be than New Orleans for Halloween. It’s such an exciting time with so much to do and see. If you’re a resident of 1st Lake Properties or thinking of becoming one, then you’re in a great position to have the best time possible for the fall holiday.

Frenchmen Street – Each year in New Orleans, the local hotspot that is Frenchmen Street hosts a block party Halloween night and usually continues the party a day or two after. Some of the best costumes in New Orleans can be seen on Frenchmen Street during Halloween.

Haunted Houses – If you’re into the whole fear factor of Halloween, there are two pretty terrifying haunted houses in New Orleans to get in the scary Halloween spirit. The Mortuary is located in a haunted building on historic Canal Street and delivers a heavy dose of frights each year. House of Shock is considered by some to be the scariest haunted house in New Orleans, located on Butterworth Street in Jefferson.

Voodoo Fest – To keep the party going into the weekend, the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience from November 1-3 will bring a three day music festival with incredible headliners like Pearl Jam and the Cure and local acts, plus interactive art installations, an art market, food and more.

Boo at the Zoo – If you’re looking for fun for the whole family, this is the place. Audubon Zoo hosts Boo at the Zoo October 18, 19, 25 and 26 from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. Dress up in costumes and bring the kids for trick or treat houses, a Ghost Train, a scary and not-so-scary haunted house, games, entertainment and more. Tickets are $17 and are free for children 12 months and younger.

If that wasn’t enough, 1st Lake Properties is directly getting in on the fun as well. Citrus Creek apartments are holding their annual Halloween pumpkin carving contest. Residents who enter the contest will put their pumpkin outside their door and the winner will be selected on Halloween day.
