Recently we traveled to Louisiana for a family crawfish boil. On the way home, we stopped by New Orleans and walked around in the French Quarter. It was our first time to be in the French Quarter during the French Quarter Festival. It was crowded, but the weather was fabulous, and the skies were crystal blue! These are some random pics that I took that day.

You never know what you’ll see in the French Quarter. Connor had a million questions for this ‘golden’ guy!

This picture is classic New Orleans!
I love the balconies with the plants!
Large crowds spread out all over Jackson Square to listen to the New Orleans Jazz bands.

We had a great time at the French Quarter Festival and found it to be family friendly in the areas we walked near Jackson Square and the Mississippi River. It was the most crowded I’ve ever seen it in the French Quarter!
