KREWE OF BOO! packs October 24th with Halloween-themed festivities
NEW ORLEANS (Oct. 13, 2015) —  KREWE OF BOO! is proud to announce FunkiFIYA will be headlining the annual after-parade costume party, the Monster Mash. FunkiFIYA is stacked with some of the funkiest players that New Orleans has ever produced, including Zigaboo Modeliste (The Meters), Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk), Tony Hall (Dumpstaphunk), June Yamagishi (Papa Grows Funk), Ian Neville (Dumpstaphunk), Big Sam (Big Sam's Funky Nation) and Khris Royal (George Porter Jr.) plus DJ OttO, who will keep everyone grooving late into the night.
It’s no trick, it’s all treat on October 24th! And the KREWE OF BOO! is handing out more goodies than you can carry in a pumpkin pail. 
Before the parade, the Krewe is hosting the first-ever King’s Party on Fulton Street to honor this year’s King Sidney Torres, IV. This free and open-to-the-public pre-parade party will last from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. and feature musical performances by Rockin’ Dopsie Jr. and Amanda Shaw. 
The parade will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Elysian Fields Ave. and Decatur St. and roll through the French Quarter ending at Mardi Gras World for the Monster Mash. The KREWE OF BOO! will again seek to reduce parade waste that ends up in landfills by primarily throwing New Orleans-made food items and local collectible objects that parade goers will want to consume or keep as mementos.
After the parade, the Monster Mash is a ticketed costume event at Mardi Gras World, featuring food, drink and live entertainment from 9pm to 2am.
