New Orleans Revelry


Speaking of masks, New Orleans must be a fun place to celebrate Halloween, right? I went in September though and the first order of things: the colorful, loud, feathery, kitschy shops! I usually hate those, but c'mon, it's part of the culture here.. how do you like my necklace? :-P... A walk through the French Quarter with its elaborate iron details and beautiful architecture lead to the old slave-auction site which now houses an outdoor market. I searched high and low for some real voodoo stuff but no luck. And yes, that is in fact a man in full feather gear of some sort.. The Big Easy indeed.


Perhaps some people are better at leaving souvenirs rather than bringing them home :-P

Looks like a fun place. I saw in the latest issue of Travel & Leisure that New Orleans was number one for nightlife, cocktail hour and music/concerts, beating out New York, Chicago, and a few others.
The food must be amazing here too I am sure. I am hoping to plan a celebration here for graduating University in April.
I agree that Halloween seems like a natural holiday for this eccentric city.
