Happy Birthday, New Orleans! Here’s How to Celebrate

Despite turning 297, New Orleans turns the big 297 on May 7th, and while it’s not a monumental year, it’s still worth celebrating…’cause you’re only 297 once!

Our fair city was founded May 7, 1718 by the French Mississippi Company, under the direction of Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville, on land inhabited by the Chitimacha Tribe. It was named for Philippe d’Orléans, Duke of Orléans, who was Regent of France at the time.

Take the Cake

Cheers
