Trick or Treat

This year it’s 134 lb of candy stacked neatly and guarded by one of our long time residents:

Lots of fun light up, glowing, sticky, squishy and non-edible goodies are on the way too!

It’s Fall, Y’all

Our quartet from last year is warming up:

And we are teaching them new numbers this year… There are so many good halloween tunes, it was hard to choose but we think you’re going to like what we’re cooking up this time around.

It’s…Alive!

Our mad scientist is hard at work in the lab. He’s cooking up new thrills, chills, and some truly wicked sounds for our skeleton krewe this year.

Today¬†brought a welcome breath of Fall in the air, cool and almost crisp, it’s beginning to look a lot like Halloween… and we can’t wait to see you.

Show schedule coming soon!

New this year – a skeletal quartet!

Our newest addition this year: a singing skeletal quartet!

It’s taken a long time to get these guys in fighting form, but we’re very excited to have them out at last and entertaining. These guys are out every night through Halloween.

Each one is a complex machine, multiple servos, data, power and tied into the whole house display, so they can have backup dancers in the windows above. But enough about them, watch them sing:

We are up and running!

The show is up and running. Last year’s show is in place and we are working on our new additions. Looks like the old favorites are still favorites!

Art for Art’s Sake

As a pre-season cold open we are setting up in time for Art for Art’s Sake on Magazine Street. Lots of foot traffic means lots of people to scare and delight. Time to get out the spider webs and wake up the ghosts!

This is Halloween, This is Halloween

October is almost here! You can feel the fall in the air because people are buying pumpkin spice lattes (even though it’s still 90 degrees in New Orleans).

That means it’s almost Halloween!

We’re getting the decorations down from the attic (a big job in itself) and planning our initial attack on the season.

We hope to be up and running with at least last year’s show by the first weekend of October.
