J & I were lucky to snag a couple VIP tickets to this week’s production of LUNA Fete at Gallier Hall.

WWL-TV (J’s employer) is a sponsor of the event, so we had VIP access to complimentary cocktails and appetizers in the raised VIP tents at Lafayette Square. Our view of the lights were breathtaking.

If you have not been you have a couple nights left. There are shows at 7 and 7:30 PM lasting about 10 minutes.

From the LUNA Fete website:

LUNA Fête 2014 is the first of a five-year initiative by the Arts Council New Orleans to employ the city's iconic architecture as the canvas for large-scale, awe-inspiring outdoor light installations across the city, leading up to the New Orleans 2018 Tricentennial.

Gallier Hall is the former New Orleans City Hall, built in the 1850s and is still in use today for special events. Situated in the 500 block of St. Charles Avenue in the heart of downtown opposite Lafayette Square, its six Ionic columns and Greek Revival façade make Gallier Hall an iconic New Orleans landmark.

Promoters of the event are hopeful that LUNA Fête becomes a way to highlight art in New Orleans through this new and exciting video mapping technology. They also hope to create a display that compliments other local holiday lighting displays such as those in City Park (Celebration in the Oaks), on Canal Street and in the lobbies of major hotels such as the Roosevelt and Royal Sonesta.

It is really a light show to see.

LUNA Fete, y’all!

  4. Good morning, Ron! I had never heard of LUNA Fete until I saw your pics on FB last night! What a fabulous light show--I'll have to put it on my list of things to see now that I have a place to stay. I'm sure you and J were styling in that VIP tent. :) Have a great day! xoxo

  11. Ron, I hope you are completely healed and feeling your absolute best this holiday season. I am loving your Christmas posts and so wish I lived in or near NOLA to attend this magical light display. How very festive!! Also, I normally read your updates on my phone or via email so I don't see the actual blog itself so I was so happy actually looking at it on my laptop tonight. I love your little Christmas accents you added, especially the stocking on the antler!

    Can't wait to see more of your lovely home in all of its Christmas glory!
