GoNOLA Find: NOLA 300 Statues

2018 marks the 300th anniversary of the city of New Orleans, and we couldn’t be more excited. Even though there’s always a reason to celebrate here, the Tricentennial is something special.

As the birthday celebrations have begun, you may have noticed the NOLA 300 sculptures. They’re seven feet tall and social media-ready. Visit one (or all) of the three locations where they can be found: City Park’s Big Lake, Woldenberg Park’s Audubon Plaza, and atop the steps of Washington Artillery Park. Visit during the day, but make sure to come back to see them illuminated at night. And obviously, take a selfie (or a few) with the sculpture, and share your #OneTimeInNOLA story with us.
