Halloween with a Heart
More than a Krewe
At 10/31 Consortium, our philosophy of service through the fun and creativity of Halloween has provided a source of hope for our community since 2010.
We understand that many parents, guardians and caregivers need assistance building positive and lasting memories for the children they love so dearly. We also understand that Halloween is often ranked as a favorite holiday for children, and we want to help you give them the safest and most fun Halloween possible.
10/31 Consortium is a volunteer-based organization and krewe; all who serve do so because they have a heart for children and a love of Halloween. We are a creative, caring and fun group of people who enjoy this unique way of giving back. 10/31 Consortium isn’t just a Halloween krewe.
Our purpose goes much deeper and the relationships we build are strengthened through our joint vision of community, courage and creativity.
10/31 Consortium is a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to serving our community through the fun and creativity of Halloween traditions and folklore.
