West Bank: Spooky Fun and a Witch

No, not in my neighborhood:

New Orleans:

West Bank has plenty of fall fun and spooky treats this weekend

The West Bank has a bounty of Halloween and Halloween-alternative events this weekend for families. You’ll find hayrides, puppets, candy, costume contests and all sorts of other fall favorites. The following is a list of events submitted to The Times-Picayune’s West Bank bureau.

Calliope Puppets in Algiers Point, 3 Vallette St., will present “Puppets Scared Silly,” a pair of silly/scary tales to celebrate Halloween, Friday, Saturday and Sunday on the West Bank. There’s a special treat if you wear a costume...

...“The Westbank Witch,” aka Patricia Baxter, sponsored by Algiers Riverview Community Garden, will present a haunted house, costume contest for ages 1 to 12 and games on Saturday from 3 to 7 p.m. at the garden, 425 Diana St. Donations of disposable bowls, nachos, wieners, buns, candy and punch are requested from the community. Also requested are game prizes, books and school supplies. Call 504.520.0024 for more information, to co-sponsor the event or arrange pickup or to drop off donations.
