SUMMER 2012 FUN IN THE FRENCH QUARTER
Commemorating the start of the French Revolution, we celebrate Bastille Days in New Orleans July 8-15. A week of events will culminate in an evening fireworks display on Friday, July 13 and an eventful Saturday on July 14 with food, music, contests and more.
The fun in the French Quarter continues with the Running of the Bulls (San Fermin en Nueva Orleans), July 12-15. While not quite as death defying as the Pamplona, Spain tradition, it’s still a great excuse to run screaming through the French Quarter and downtown New Orleans.
After days and nights of music and culture, come home to your New Orleans Bed & Breakfast Inn. There’s no better way to stay when you’re in New Orleans. Click here to find your New Orleans B&B.
