Welcome 2012 in New Orleans

November 27th, 2011 by bbnola

New Year’s Eve in New Orleans is not for early birds.

Fireworks

Watch fireworks over the Mississippi on New Year's Eve in New Orleans.

The party starts a few hours before midnight in Jackson Square. Folks pass the time dancing to live music until “Baby Bacchus” drops from the roof of the nearby Jax Brewery. After that exciting moment, fireworks light the sky.

In some cities, this is the beginning of the end. People drift homewards, to bed. Not so in New Orleans.

It’s always a bit hard for this city to go to sleep. There is always good food to eat, good drinks to consume, and good music to enjoy. Some of the most exciting jam sessions take place in intimate bars, where the musicians congregate after their nightly gigs. Folks who can stay up late are in for a treat.

This wonderful mood is amplified on New Year’s Eve. Restaurants, bars and cafés all over the city host spectacular parties, most of which require advance tickets. These can be fun, but there is really no need to leave the outdoor party on Bourbon Street.

If you haven’t already, now is the time to make your New Orleans New Year’s plans. Book a room in a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast, and let the party begin.

New Year's Eve in New Orleans

It is no surprise that New Orleans is a fantastic place to welcome the New Year, given the city’s propensity towards celebration. If you are looking to do something different this year on December 31, travel here and stay in a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast.

The biggest party in the city takes place in Jackson Square, in front of the grand St. Louis Cathedral. Crowds can be dense, but the mood is festive and gay as folks await the dropping of Baby Bacchus from the top of nearby Jax Brewery. Once the baby bounces, fireworks fill the sky over the Mississippi River. Eventually the crowd breaks up: some folks heading to Bourbon Street to dine and dance until dawn, others heading to various spots around the city.
