Anba Dlo (pronounced "Ahnbah Dlo") is Haitian Creole for "Beneath the Waters" and is meant to acknowledge and honor the importance of water to our life. Presented by the Marigny's New Orleans Healing Center for the past five years, Anba Dlo is a costumed, interactive community festival that kicks off the Halloween season with a series of events that highlights New Orleans' multicultural and alternative influences. The festival's subtitle, "LEVEE LEVEE LEVEE" means "Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!" but refers also to the city's protective landforms, the focus of this year's event. Featuring a costumed parade, a full music line-up, interactive art installations and dance elements, acrobats, and more, Anba Dlo should provide a kick in the pants to anyone who simply puts on devil horns and calls it "Halloween." Noon at 2372 St. Claude Avenue. $15–$25. 18+. neworleanshealingcenter.org.
