A Busy, Fun Packed 2021 Halloween on the Riverbank!

Saturday, October 30 was an eventful day of fun for all ages on the Natchitoches riverbank. The popular Farmers’ Market was joined by Witch Way to Main Street. Well over 1,000 young ghouls, superheroes, and costumed figures of every description and their families visited booths staffed by various community and NSU organizations as well as area businesses where the youngsters could try their hand at games and rake in lots of sweet loot.

The popular event, started in 2000, is a long-standing and eagerly awaited community tradition that provides families a safe place for their little ones to have fun and trick or treat. This event is one of the many things that make life in our community so special. More than a few of the parents of the little ones dressed up tonight were themselves trick or treaters at an earlier Witch Way to Main Street event.

The Farmers’ Market featured a special treat as Natchitoches’ own Indigeaux Tribal Fusion Belly Dance troupe was joined by the Gems of Shreveport and the parish library’s beginner class in a delightful Halloween performance. The dancers performed their iconic “Witches Dance” as well as several other pieces. The troupe is a fixture of the Natchitoches arts scene and has performed in the Christmas Festival Parade as well as dance competitions.

From homemade crafts and home-grown food to Halloween treats, the Natchitoches Riverbank was the place to be!
