New Orleans, La. - On Wednesday, the Krewe of Boo announced plans for its 2013 Halloween Parade, which adds some new, spooky twists to the New Orleans-style Mardi Gras tradition.
The krewe will parade October 26, 2013 starting at 6 p.m. in the New Orleans French Quarter.
Green is not just the color of witches and toads, its also the mantra for selecting the krewe's throws. The locally-produced throws are all meant to reduce waste on the streets after the parade rolls.
"Krewe of Boo revelers will throw premier items that people really want- products that they can take home and use," said Brian Kern, the parade's organizer. "It's all about the quality. People are going to be thrilled with the throws they collect!"
