7 Reasons Why You Will Fall Madly in Love With New Orleans
6. The Parties
Mardi Gras, French Quarter Jazz Fest, Southern Decadence, Halloween, New Year’s Eve…New Orleans loves to party! It seems like there is a festival every six weeks here, and when there’s no festival there are people on the streets and in the bars 24/7.
“Laissez les bon temps rouler” means that New Orleanians don’t ever pass up the chance to celebrate and indulge.
One of the gayest celebrations (outside of Southern Decadence) is most definitely Halloween. It attracts the LGBT community from all over the world, and has dominates as a fixture on the gay calendar.
