Krewe of BOO! became New Orleans' Official Halloween Parade in 2007 and since then has grown to be a spooktacular weekend of Halloween-themed events, combining the magnitude of Mardi Gras with the macabre theatrics of All Hallow's Eve.
Featuring floats of world-renowned Kern Studios, the parade's beautifully horrific props and sculptures start with talented Kern artists, sketching creative images for the unique Krewe of BOO! Once approved by Chief Spookster Brian Kern’s discerning eye, the images “come to life” as 3-dimensional fiberglass or papier-mâché props that excite and frighten parade-goers with their imaginative artistic style.
Kern Studios is the premier float building organization in America, and the Kern quality rolls in celebrations throughout the world. The thrill of riding amongst the monsters and eerie creatures in Krewe of BOO! is an exhilarating experience you will always remember. Join the Krewe today!
