For the last 30 years, in April of each year there has been a world-class party happening in the historic New Orleans French Quarter, the French Quarter Festival. In addition to being a musical feast for the ears, and a gastronomic feast for the tastebuds, it’s also a huge economic impact generator for the city of New Orleans. I traveled to the Quarter this weekend to check it out and you can see the results in the video below.
If you have never been to the French Quarter Festival, mark it on your calendar for next year.
