Boo, y'all. It's Halloween in St. Tammany Parish, and there are no shortage of fun Halloween activities, pumpkin decorating contests, not-so-scary events, pumpkin patches and more on the Northshore. So break out your costume and let's get to Trick-or-Treating!
The Garden Spot in Mandeville and Banting’s Nursery in Lacombe has wonderful photo ops and a large collection of pumpkins, gourds and fall foliage in every color. Jim's Pumpkins on Florida Street in Mandeville and a variety of local churches like St. Michael's on Sharp Road in Mandeville also have pumpkin patches. Stop by and snap a shot!
