Summer is upon us, and with the long nights and howling winds of winter (mostly) behind us it’s time to look for the best possible ways to get up to some high jinks in 2016.

I have just the thing…

As you’ve probably noticed by now I’m a little obsessed with creatures of the night. Unsurprisingly I am also a huge fan of New Orleans and it’s right at the top of my list of places to visit. So imagine how excited I am at the prospect of a weekend long, vampire masquerade ball in…you guessed it, New Orleans!

I’m hoping to attend this year, although given work commitments it’s not looking likely. Next year however, is a SHOE IN, I’ve already blocked it off in my calendar!

Piqued your interest? Check out the official website of for the world’s most famous (and infamous) vampire ball here…

Endless Nights Vampire Ball is a three day spectacle of undead delight, with events throughout the weekend, the highlights including Cirque du Vampyre, the New Orleans Vampire Ball, Vampire Court, The Vampire Salon, and the Diamond Banquet.
