Holidays in New Orleans

Count down to 2014 in New Orleans Style

fireworks This is no small celebration, as the Crescent City Countdown Club has created a night to remember.

For your enjoyment – begin your evening with one of the delicious, traditional Reveillon dinners served by local restaurants.

For your entertainment – check out the Decatur Street celebration (in front of Jacson Square) with live performances up to the countdown.  Move and groove with Brassaholics from 9-9:40, Mia Borders from 10-10:40, and Bonerama from 11-11:40.

Join the excitement – an 8′ tall fleur de lis ornament that has been lit with LED lights and decorated with aluminum ribbons, will descend down a 25 foot pole.  This spectacle is followed by an amazing fireworks display over the Mississippi River, called “Symphony in the Sky.”
