Caroling at Jackson Square

This is one of my favorite New Orleans holiday traditions! It's so beautiful to carol by candlelight at the foot of St. Louis Cathedral. We'll meet a little early to group up so we can find each other, then get a good spot in the square when they open the doors. Wear something festive and let's enjoy singing together! More details coming about exact meeting location!

    Caroling will be going on still as far as I know - I just won't be there! I'll be sipping hot cocoa by the fire at home. (Uptown.) Want to join me? Check your email - you should have information. If not, text me at 205.907.9955. Cheers!

    • Carla R.

      Plan B is cozy hot drinks at my home, 7 p.m. If anyone else didn't get the email, text me and I'll provide the address. I'm uptown if that makes a difference. Please let me know if you are coming! My cell is[masked]

    Is there a rain plan? Any idea if cancellation could happen? Looks like weather could get worse later this afternoon ... :(

    • Carla R.

      No alternative plan right now. If there's no caroling, I don't have other plans yet. I'm not sure if they do this even if it rains - not sure. Stay tuned!

      You can also pay to park at Jax Brewery - if you're in a hurry and time is more of the essence than $$. I'll probably ride my bike!

      What does it cost to park?

    Believe I missed the info about where we're meeting at 6:00pm - can you repost?

      Let's meet just to the left of St. Louis Cathedral - out front. Left as you're facing the cathedral. That should work! We'll have time to chat a little before they open the doors to the square at 6:30.

      We are a big group! I think we'll meet just at the left of St. Louis Cathedral if you're facing the cathedral. I'll bring a sign or something! Yay! My cell is[masked] if you need to reach me.

    If Hubby doesnt want to go this year Im in - or is anyone else bringing their partner?

      I am single and go to most events solo. I'm the type of person that never meet a stranger. Bring the hubby if he doesn't want to come still go. You will have a blast.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
