Love music? Especially jazz? You should visit the New Orleans Musical Legends Park during #LNLConvention2014. The park, established in 2000, presents Louisiana’s cultural and musical past in a variety of ways. The park is designed to provide public schools and tourists with a fun, educational venue to relax, learn, and listen to great tunes.
Liberty National Listening to the Legends
New Orleans Musical Legends Park recognizes New Orleans’ legendary performers such as Al Hirt, Pete Fountain, Fats Dominio, Chris Owens, Ronnie Kole, Louis Prima, and Allen Toussaint*. While you’re visiting the park, catch some live music by Steamboat Willie, one of the destination’s most popular attractions.
At the park you’ll see many musical displays, performances, artwork, and have the chance to eat at any of the popular restaurants in the area. The life-like bronze sculptures and on-site musicians provide a fun atmosphere for students to learn more about their musical craft. This is a great place for visitors and tourists wanting to get a closer look at the unique musical culture of NOLA. Pose for some fun photos with the outdoor displays and musicians. (Don’t forget to share your vacation pictures on Liberty National’s official Social Media sites!) Take a stroll, grab a seat, eat a delicious beignet, and enjoy the jazzy sounds echoing all around you from the live local bands.
