Trivia: Which U.S. city is home to an annual fall voodoo festival?
St. Paul, Minnesota
New Orleans, Louisiana
Correct Answer: New Orleans, Louisiana
So why is this answer correct? : In the early 1700s, enslaved West African peoples in Louisiana combined their religious beliefs with Catholic traditions, creating a new practice called “voodoo.” New Orleans voodoo relies heavily on the belief that spirits can be reached through rituals such as music and dance, which are fixtures of the festivities at the Voodoo Music and Arts Festival, held during Halloween weekend in New Orleans.
