Too broke for Voodoo Fest? No worries! We got you covered! Here are just a few things to get your Halloween fix this year, on a budget that’s just downright scary.
Rocky Horror Picture Show @ midnight at The Prytania featuring the Well Hung Speakers Shadowcast!
Come for the heebees, stay for the geebees. The Prytania has been proudly showing the cult classic for years now every Halloween weekend. The event is BYOB and open to all of the public. Wear your favorite costume and get ready to experience Rocky Horror in all its transsexual glory. Tickets are only $12, making it an affordable Halloween treat for anyone looking for a cheap date.
Halloween, LGBT Style!
Every year the residents of the Marigny celebrate Halloween in style, LGBT style, that is. The historic neighborhood known for its artistic communities encourages those who are LGBT+ and its allies to come out in full pride and show off their stuff. Every night this weekend will be a different sponsored event around the city in celebration of the city’s rich heritage. It all gets capped off on Sunday night with a tea party on The Creole Queen riverboat and a second line right after. For more info on those events, click here.
Brews and Boos at Carousel Gardens Amusement Park in City Park!
This year, City Park’s doing something a little different. In an effort to get the party going all night long, the amusement park is offering an adults-only experience for the masses. For $30, a ticket for one will net you unlimited beer, snacks, and amusement rides like the infamous Lady Bug rollercoaster. The event will last from 11 P.M. until 2 A.M. and will certainly be a revelry unlike any other this Halloween. Info for the event can be found here.
Hell’s Gala ft. Steve Aoki, Mija, Bleep Bloop, Wukie, and more.
Can’t swing that heavy Voodoo price tag but still want some tunes with the haunts? Hell’s Gala offers a great dance lineup with headliners like Steve Aoki and Mija. Tickets are $50 general admission, which is still considerably cheaper than a hefty penny. The event is put on by Winter Circle Productions on Saturday night and is held at Mardi Gras World on the banks of the Mississippi. Info and tickets can be found here.
