Fall Festivals in New Orleans, Part II – Episode #75

Fall Festivals in New Orleans, Part II

Today’s show is all about Fall Festivals in New Orleans. It is Part II of our Fall guide. In Episode #71, we covered September and October. Today, we’ll cover events in November and December.

By the end of today’s show, we will have you ready to go for your visit!

Like Part 1 of the Fall Festivals Guide, I am joined by my wife, Marie Bologna. If you’ve joined our Facebook group, the Beyond Bourbon Street Krewe, you’ve probably benefitted from her ideas and insights about New Orleans. She helps with ideas, contributes frequently to the group and pretty much keeps me in line.

Sponsor: The Old 77 Hotel and Chandlery

When you’re ready to make your plans to visit New Orleans, you’ll need a place to stay! The Old 77 is ideally situated in the Warehouse District, just three blocks from the French Quarter. It features a variety of pet-friendly rooms, the award-winning Compere Lapin restaurant, and more.

You’ll love the location, the rooms, and the food, but the details and the service are what you’ll fall in love with!

To book your room, click here or use code BBOLD77 to save 25% off their regular rates.

You’ll also get a bit of lagniappe, a little something extra. In this case, you’ll receive a $10 credit to be used at Tout La in the hotel lobby – your stop for coffee and a quick bite to eat as you head out to explore New Orleans.
