Looking for something to do in New Orleans for Mother’s Day? These are my top picks. These events are perfect if you are looking to skip the usual brunch and associated wait times. They are also a good options if you like to be outdoors and have children that need to be entertained.
Mother’s Day Celebration at Audubon Zoo featuring Irma Thomas
Tickets range from $15-$20 with free admission for moms and Audubon members
New Leviathan Oriental Fox-Trot Orchestra
Cabrini Park at Gov Nicholls and Dumaine St. 4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
It’s free! Bring a picnic! This could be a good wrap up to a walking tour of the French Quarter.
Get creative and curate your own experience.
If you love the outdoors and historic sites, New Orleans is filled with hidden nature walks, sites and sounds. The Couturie Forest in New Orleans City Park and the Barataria Preserve are two of my favorites.
Consider creating an outdoor experience with a packed picnic basket for a personal touch. Or, if you prefer a full dine-in experience, you can accomplish this with a family style meal. The memories created from the time spent with your mom and family is priceless.
**All events listed are for Sunday, May 8, 2016
Whatever you decide to do, have fun and be safe.
