Soiree Spooktacular on March 28
Man oh man we could not be more excited about this party! The Mortuary is one of the top haunted attractions in America, and it's been a favorite of 'WEEN DREAM founder Kelsey Meeks since she moved to New Orleans in 2007. But it's not just a haunted house, outside of Halloween season it's called Mystere Mansion and it hosts all kinds of events, such as wedding reception and corporate parties. If you're not familiar with The Mortuary, here's a little history. It was built as a residence in 1872 and served as such until the 1930s, when it became a mortuary and funeral home. Lavish funeral services were held at The Mortuary for over 60 years, when the building fell into disrepair. Hurricane Katrina hit, doing further damage. But owner, Jeff Borne, had a vision of restoring the lovely building to its former glory and has done just that. We could not be more grateful to Jeff, Ben Hulin (event manager for The Mortuary), and the staff there for making our dreams come true by hosting this party for 'WEEN DREAM!
