New Orleans offers plenty of entertainment for Red Wolves fans

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The New Orleans Bowl is getting closer, which means more fans are arriving in The Big Easy to cheer on the Red Wolves.

The city has several fun events that fans can also enjoy before or after the game.

Bow Executive Director Billy Ferrante said there are things for all ages in NOLA.

A few of the major attractions he mentioned are, of course, Bourbon Street and the French Quarter where live music can be seen on every corner.

There is also a wide variety of food, the Aquarium of the Americas, the Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium and street car rides to enjoy.

Ferrante said the biggest attraction, though, is how much there is to do in just one small part of the city.

“It’s the appeal of the City of New Orleans for these big events that everything that a fan could want is within a half mile to three-quarter mile radius,” Ferrante said.

The New Orleans Bowl is hosting events also. There will be a raceway set up in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome Friday night and a free concert following that at Champion Square.

There is also a cheerleading clinic on Saturday morning. Those participants will perform at halftime.

If you can’t make it to New Orleans for the game, make sure to stay tuned to Region 8 News as we track continue our bowl game coverage.
