Once a year the Krewe of Boo presents its fantastically horrific Halloween parade to turn the Vieux Carre (French Quarter) into the “Boo Carre”!

This parade is typically held on the Saturday evening before Halloween, and all are welcome to join the festivities.


Krewe of Boo became the official Halloween Parade in New Orleans in 2007, and it’s grown every year since! With floats constructed by Kern Studios, America’s premier float-building organization, the parade frightens and excites the crowds. Kern artists design 3-D papier mâché and fiberglass props that mimic all of Halloween’s spooky creatures.

Parade riders throw various items to onlookers as they pass by, much to the delight of both children and adults. Parade throws include candy, chee wees, pralinettes, light-up medallion beads, voodoo doll pins and magnets, doubloons, and children’s toys.
Krewe of Boo throws are all collectable or consumable, which cuts back on waste.
Interested in riding in the parade for yourself? Krewe of Boo accepts new members for each year’s ride. For more info or to register, visit their membership page.

Parade Route

The Krewe of Boo Halloween parade progresses through the French Quarter, passing to Jackson Square and then towards the Warehouse District, all the way up to the Convention Center.
