The witches and the queens and the ghosts and the goblins come out for Halloween New Orleans for a series of fundraising events Halloween weekend, including the Lazarus Ball, a dance night, flamboyant costume ball and parade.

This weekend of fun was started as a dinner party given by a few people to honor friends and loved ones who died from AIDS. The four-day event now includes the famous Lazarus Ball on Thursday night, which is a fancy fundraising event for Lazarus House with food, open bar, music and a silent auction.

Friday night is dance night with a DJ and dancing all night long. The main event takes place Saturday with a costume party, contests, music and more dancing, and lots to eat and drink.

Sunday means brunch, of course. Past venues have been aboard the Creole Queen riverboat followed by a French Quarter second line parade to the club Oz.

All of the proceeds from Halloween New Orleans benefit the Lazarus Project, a home in New Orleans for men and women living with AIDS. Halloween New Orleans has raised over $4.6 million for the project.

Most events are 21 and older and include food and drinks.
