New Orleans New Years Eve
December 31, 2013 Schedule
New Orleans, Louisiana


    For the biggest party in the city, head down to Jackson Square. The Quarter is packed with party-lovers eager to count down the time until the New Year arrives. Everyone knows that New Orleans does everything a little differently, so don’t expect your run of the mill New Years ball drop. New Orleans “Baby New Year” drops from its perch on the top of Jax Brewery followed by a magnificent fireworks show over the Mississippi. Remember to just follow the crowds to Bourbon Street and party until the early morning, or maybe break away from the group and find your own special spot to celebrate.

    If you are in the mood for live music then just check out whose playing the biggest shows in town. New Years concerts feel more like parties in New Orleans. Bigger name venues like Tipitina’s and the House of Blues usually throw quite a festive party. Smaller, more intimate bars and clubs also feature amazing entertainment to make sure your New Years celebration is unforgettable. If you are planning a trip to New Orleans, make sure you check out who is playing where and since some venues sell out before the big night, check and see if you can purchase tickets ahead of time.

    If you are looking for a celebration the whole family can enjoy, there are fun options for kids. The Louisiana Children’s Museum hosts an annual Countdown to Noon – a festive celebration featuring games, entertainment, and a New Years countdown complete with balloon and confetti drops and a soda-pop toast. Festive hats and noisemakers are also included to make the evening an extra-special affair. Also, the Audubon Zoo hosts a “Noon Years Eve” celebration, where the kids can ring in the New Year in one of the country’s top-rated Zoos. This event features live music, games and prizes, and a countdown with sparkling apple cider.
