Ghost Manor

The ghoulish denizens of Ghost Manor are taking over once again. Although the human inhabitants are still dealing with significant damage from Hurricane Ida, the ghosts and ghouls were not content to remain silent this year. We tried. But who wants to argue with ghosts? The singing skeletons were especially insistent. Once the zombie dancers and lightning ghost got wind of their idea, there was no stopping them. After staying hidden last year, they just weren’t having it. They were very persuasive (to say the least) and convinced us to allow them to revive some of their old favorites for a limited engagement. We’d be happy if you come by to see them — we don’t want to deal with grumpy ghosts!

Where: Corner of Magazine Street and Second Street in New Orleans
