New Orleans activities at Easter

Hi. My wife and I will be visiting NO from the UK around Easter time in 2014. Can anyone help with information on what parades or festivals will be on over the Easter weekend. Google seems strangely quiet on the subject. We could come the weekend before if there is a better chance of picking up a music festival etc. Any info really welcome. Thanks

There is no Easter music festival, but there are small parades on Easter Sunday in the Quarter. It's a fun day, a lot of people dress up or dress down (costumes). Here's some info from last year.

We were there last Easter. There were 4 parades, with bead throws. By FAR the most fun was the gay parade - do not miss. Not small at all, and everyone was really into it. Family friendly as well (not sure if that is a concern). neworleansonline.com/neworleans/…easter.html Other than that, just another day although you could have a more formal brunch/dinner. Most everything is opened.

Music is everywhere in NOLA, festival or no. That said, the French Quarter Festival is the week before Easter this year - April 10-13 2014.

David, we were there this year for Easter and had such a great time we just booked our Easter trip in 2014! The gay Easter parade is a total blast. We didn't bring hats last trip but we're thinking about bringing some this trip. We had Easter brunch at Mr. B's between parades and hit the carousel bar before the gay parade - followed up by Sunday night at Kermit's Treme Speakeasy. You can never go wrong in New Orleans! :)

Thanks for the update. It looks like we will be there the week before now so we will pick up the music festival. Based on the answers here it looks like it is a great place at any time
