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

The 2024 parade will roll on October 19, and all are welcome to join the spooky 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 paper mâché and fiberglass props that mimic all of Halloween’s spooky creatures.

Parade riders will throw various items to onlookers as they pass by, much to the delight of both children and adults. Parade throws will 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. Be sure to keep an eye out for their floats!
