Big Day in the Big Easy: Halloween New Orleans Style

Mention the words “holiday” and “New Orleans” in a sentence, and a lot of folks immediately think of Mardi Gras. Some people may think of a religious holiday, like Easter or Christmas, or the opening day of the Saints’ NFL season, or Louis Armstrong’s birthday, or the beginning of French Quarter Days, or the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
