For those of us that call New Orleans home, we know what’s coming. Festivals, parades, tours, and music, you name it and we’ll be there. In New Orleans it’s all about the spirit of something no matter if we’re celebrating music, food, theater, literature, or even our own flavorful history, we’re always connected in that New Orleans is our home. And here we always invite anyone and everyone to be a part of that family and welcome them when they show up with a great drink and a hot plate of food to eat. New Orleans culture is rich in art, music, food, and drinks, but what we pride ourselves on is hospitality.
If you’re planning a trip to New Orleans soon there’s a few great things coming up you should know about. The Vieux To Do: Cajun and Zydeco Festival is going on June 8th and 9th. This huge event brings together the Cajun-Zydeco Music Festival, the Louisiana Seafood Festival, and the Creole Tomato Festival all into one spectacular weekend of festivities. It’s a weekend to be enjoyed thoroughly as you can come and get a taste of just about everything New Orleans culture has to offer.
Outside of festivals and parades, there are more dangerous aspects to our city! Dangerous as in more fun! Airboat Adventures is a swamp tour company that lies just about thirty minutes outside of the French Quarter. You can see it now, having fun at the Cajun and Zydeco Festival and wondering as midday passes into afternoon what other fun things there are to do? Swamp tours! These alligators won’t be on aprons or coffee mugs, but in the water next to your boat just waiting for their next meal. Or you can go earlier and use the festival to calm you down and settle your nerves!
Don’t forget Airboat Adventures will come and pick you up from the French Quarter, they run a shuttle service. You can always count on New Orleans being a package deal, you just got to know where to find all the prizes. And Airboat Adventures is one of the great ones. You can call or go online to figure out what your schedule can fit in, and bring your whole crew, they have boats to accommodate almost any size group. Don’t come all the way down to New Orleans and miss the chance to see a real live alligator!
