Children's Music Festival at the Old U.S. Mint

There will be a music festival for children this Saturday September 15th from 2-6pm at the Old U.S. Mint (Barracks Street and Decatur Street). This is a new thing for the neighborhood and details are slim, but I’m guessing there will be a local lineup and lots of fun for all ages.

Paint-A-Pumpkin 2006 was a huge success

Thanks to everyone who made our first event possible, especially the Lower Decatur Merchants Association for donating all the treats and supplies. Thanks to Chuck from Tyler’s Pride Produce for finding us the perfect pumpkins. Also, we’d all like to thank Dan from the Noomoon Tribe for loaning us his tables. And finally thanks to the parents and kids who painted thier hearts out.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the day.

Paint-A-Pumpkin 2006 this Saturday

The Lower Decatur Merchants Association and have teamed up to sponsor a new annual event for the kids of New Orleans. Inspired by the traditional fall pumpkin sales at the French Market’s produce shed, we present:

Paint-A-Pumpkin 2006

Kids of all ages are invited to the 400 block of Governor Nichols (between Decatur Street and French Market Place) on Saturday October 14th from Noon to 3pm. We’ll be painting pumpkins which will be available for a nominal cost (you may bring your own). All of the decorating materials will be provided. Trick-or-Treat bags will be given to all the kids. Other activities include Magic Shows, Balloon art, and Giant Bubble blowing. Costumes are encouraged.

Saturday, October 14th Noon – 3pm
