New Orleans Is The Hot Place To Party In July PDF Print E-mail

The Big Easy is a great senior destination to spend some summer days and nights. There’s the San Fermin en Nueva Orleans, the annual Bastille Day (7/14) imitation of the Pamplona running of the bulls. In the Louisiana city, instead of real angry bovines, friendly Rollergirls fake attack tourists with pain-free wiffle ball bats.

The program begins on Sunday, July 13 with a cocktail party and auction,  and continues the next day with a burlesque show and Ernest Hemingway lookalike contest.  Also, the New Orleans Museum of Art celebrates Bastille Day with French music, guided gallery tours, pop-up shops, children's activities, and Francophile food and wine.

From July 17 to 22, it’s a bartenders and cocktail connoisseurs contest. The annual Tales of the Cocktail, a week of events that includes friendly competitions for the world’s most creative bartenders.
