Holiday Season In New Orleans
The holiday season is a magical time in New Orleans. We, at Alert Transportation, can get you to all your beloved holiday events that have become traditions in the city. As you know, there will be plenty of crowds and parking will be tight. It also can get very chilly this time of year, and the last thing you want is standing in the cold and waiting for your ride. We can get you to all your favorite holiday events hassle free. Here are a few events you don’t want to miss this holiday season:
LUNA Fête will take place December 12 through 15 at Lafayette Square. This free holiday event is a visionary initiative created by the Arts Council New Orleans to demonstrate the power of art to transform communities. This free and open to the public festival of light, art, and technology celebrates New Orleans creative industries and provides a memorable experience for diverse event attendees. Since its 2014 inception, LUNA Fête has presented some of the top light and projection-based artists in the world, while simultaneously providing training to local artists to advance their capabilities to create large-scale and interactive art animated with light. More than 200 New Orleans artists and 60 youth have advanced their technical and artistic skills through this unique educational opportunity.
