Halloween Parade

I had been trying to figure out what to do with the baby for Halloween for weeks. The Quarter is not exactly the best place for door to door trick-or-treating. He is too young to put in a lot of effort to get myself invited to go trick-or-treating with another Mom that I half know in an area suburb. While I wa about to give up at the last minute I got an email from the Big Easy Roller Girls inviting everyone to come out to the Molly’s at the Market Halloween parade. This was perfect.
So I tied some halloween decorations on the baby carrier. Put the little one in his costume and armed with two bags of candy that I should not have eaten anyway we went just one block down teh street to join the party. There were a few other kids at the parade, more than I would have expected. It also seemed like some people brought their kids out to watch the parade as it passed. I joined the parade and walked along with them down Decatur, Bienville then Burgundy and back up to Bourbon. They were stopped at Bourbon for quite a while and so we decided to bail and head home.
I had lots of fun as did the baby and it seemed everyone else as well. I think we might make it a tradition. It was way more fun than trick-or-treating and not only did we get candy we also got beads and a stuffed animal.
