New Orleans is known for its fabulous festival. A fairly new one to try is the VooDoo Experience. This event was started in 1999 as the Voodoo Music Festival and featured such artists as Wyclef Jean and Ben Folds.
The re-named VooDoo Music Experience has grown to a three day extravaganza with over 100 artists on several stages, encompassing a myriad of music styles. Tickets are available from the event website at opens in a new window http://thevoodooexperience.com/
Lodging in New Orleans over Halloween weekend is hard to come by, so make sure you reserve your accommodations at 1896 O’Malley House.
