[The French Quarter, New Orleans, October 30, 2009]

Earlier this year I uploaded some photos of my walk down Bourbon Street on Halloween night. The costumes were over the top, and the occasion was nothing, if not an unbelievably good time.

I would like to go again, this year, and I am inviting anyone that would like to go, or even think about going, to contact me.

Halloween lands on Sunday, so good weekend packages could be negotiated at the Sheraton on Canal Street, right across the street from the French Quarter.

Let me know!

Dude shown here in this daytime shot was not in costume. He was one of the few “normal” people I saw in New Orleans last year. (LOL)

    Don't tempt me----that would be SO much fun! But I need to know....does your invitation include airfare, because that will make a difference on whether I actually show up, or just send you the life size cardboard (sort of a flat Susan) to put in various places along the Quarter for those photo ops. Oh wait....I may have answered my own question--I see you've included the link to "WALKIN' to New Orleans". Seriously, a wonderful capture of the non-costumed gent; I am looking forward to the next group of photos!

    Those shots were a riot. My fav was the guy doing Maureen O'Hara, or was it O'Sullivan?

  • Richard Knight

    Richard Knight said (21 Jun 2010):

    Neither, Bruce. It was Mia Farrow! You have a great memory. He was doing an impression of the Queen of Technicolor, Miss O'Hara! Many thanks for your nice comment.

    Nancy and I used to go NOLA way every year until Katrina. Have not been back since. I will talk it over with her but I think we had planned San Fran around the same time. Maybe can combine depending on dates. If I can work something out I will let you know.
