There is a festival in and around New Orleans just about every weekend (and some multiples in there, too), and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Whether it’s jazz or gumbo or oysters or Creole tomatoes or burlesque, we’ll be there.
They are the very finest roving parties/parades in the world, because anyone can just join in and roll with the fun. Plus, there’s always great music, not to mention plentiful enterprising locals selling water, beer, booze, Jell-O shots, and other fine things.
Oh yeah, do we love our firemen in this town! Maybe they do everywhere, but we especially appreciate our brave firefighters in NOLA.
The city is wonderful, but every now and again it’s great to get away for a couple of days to go fish, hunt, enjoy a festival out in Cajun country, or relax at the beach.
