New Orleans Turns 300!


As the years come and go, it can feel as if the time is going faster and faster each passing moment.  I imagine this is how New Orleans natives who have lived here their entire lives must feel, as New Orleans is turning 300 years old this year. Celebrations honoring our beloved home can be found on almost every street this year, whether it may be Uptown or Downtown, MidCity or Metairie. Art exhibits featuring sculptures, paintings, photographs, and small films in tribute to the tricentennial can be seen at places like the Newcomb Art Gallery of the New Orleans Museum of Art. Musical performances from people like Trombone Shorty can be heard during this time of celebration, and history lessons on our rich cultural heritage will be given out at the Ursuline Convent. Regardless of how you decide to partake in the festivities, there is something to do for everyone and anyone.
