Named for the Voodoo term for the transition to the next world, the Healing Center's Anba Dlo festival is becoming a Halloween weekend rite. A costume parade leaves Markey Park (3300 Royal St.) at 5:30 p.m. and heads to the Healing Center, where a costume party (must be 21 to enter) continues with music by Cyril Neville and Tribe 13, John Mooney, 101 Runners with Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Coco Robicheaux and others. There also are fire dancers, acrobats, art displays and more. Tickets $20 (includes open bar). New Orleans Healing Center, 2372 St. Claude Ave. www.neworleanshealingcenter.org.
