New Year’s Eve in New Orleans: Fun, Fireworks and Fleur-de-Lis
Get your count down on at Jackson Square, near our New Orleans bed and breakfast, for live music with Eric Lindell and the Honey Island Swamp Band. Just before midnight, from the top of Jax Brewery, the 8-foot-tall fleur-de-lis drops down to switch on the 2014 light.
After the drop, you will want to keep your eyes on the sky for a spectacular 10-minute firework display, consistently ranked one of the best in the nation. You’ll find a club in the French Quarter or along Frenchman Street that will be perfect for your ongoing celebration of the new year. You can also reserve a spot on one of our historic paddlewheel riverboats to watch the fireworks and enjoy some music and food.
If the French Quarter scene isn’t for you, check out local listings to find your favorite band or discover a new love at some of New Orlean’s great music venues such as Tipitina’s, the Howlin’ Wolf, or the new Civic Theatre on Freret Street near our New Orleans Bed and Breakfast.
The Grand Victorian wishes you a safe and happy new year. We look forward to seeing you during your travels in 2014.
