Well, it's official.
Jazz Fest 2015 is in full swing!
The hustle and bustle of Jazz Fest can be felt and seen far from City Park! Here at Pontchartrain Landing and The Lighthouse we have proof of that as we welcome more people every day to celebrate what New Orleanians consider the real holiday season.
For this year's 10-day Jazz Fest spread, we're bringing our guests live music and events every day of the week. To top it off we've got brand new cocktails and delicious deals on daiquiris and drinks every day!
In addition, we'll be serving up a delicious breakfast menu for our guests on Saturday, May 2nd and Sunday, May 3rd from 7:30 to 10:30 AM to ensure that all our fest-goers are fueled up for the long days. We'll be posting our menu later this week so be sure to check back for details!
