Celebrate the joy of life

In 2005 Hurricane Katrina dealt the city a blow that called its very existence into question. In the midst of the agony of rebuilding the city there was a miracle – the New Orleans joie de vivre and genius for pleasure re-emerged intact. Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest were celebrated within months of the deluge. Backyard crawfish boils and second line parades resumed as restaurants and clubs reopened. For New Orleanians, the whole point of being here is to enjoy life. And they invite you to join them.
