NOLA Fetes Demon Who Visits the Night Before St. Nick
Krampus is the stuff of nightmares. His name is derived from the German word Krampen, or to claw, and the night before Nikolaustag (Saint Nick’s Day) the beast creeps into town and beats the children into being nice. Of course, New Orleans will be feting this anti-hero with a mini-fest on December 5.
Annual Freret Street Festival Returns This Weekend

However, their goal remains the same: to bring together tourists and locals alike to enjoy great food, music, and company. Isn’t that what this city is all about?

Magic Man David Blaine to Play NOLA
When you think of magic in New Orleans, local icons like Marie Laveau might come to mind. Decatur St. is littered with botanicas and mystical readings dominate Jackson Square, sure. Despite our long history with the occult, the city is not a destination for performance magic. That, it seems, is all about to change for at least one night. Magician, illusionist, stunt artist, and former member of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Pussy Posse, David Blaine will bring his many talents to New Orleans this summer.

NWS Predicts an Explosive Storm Season
The last few days have seen an increase in overcast cloudy skies and heavy winds clocking in above 30 mph in New Orleans — which some meteorologists believe is a small indicator of what is to come this storm season. According to the National Weather Service (NWS), record warm winters this year and above average temps in the Gulf of Mexico waters could mean "severe” storm activity this spring.
