New Orleans’ Thursdays at Twilight

By Hudson, USA, June 2011

No reviews, be the first!

It’s Thursday, so that means it’s the beginning of the weekend. I know that many people consider Friday round 5ish to be the start of the weekend, but I’m sorry—that’s just not so. The siren call of Saturday and Sunday are strong, and most can tough out a long Friday, so let the games begin a little earlier, eh? Still, it’s best to take it a bit easy on Thursday none-the-less. With all that in mind, comes the Thursdays At Twilight Garden Concert Series. Imagine strolling through the nation’s largest stand of mature live oaks, sipping a mint julep, and listening to some great music. Good way to start the weekend, right? You’ll love it. Trust me.

The Twilight Nights are set in the New Orleans Botanical Garden, a Works Progress project born in 1936, and a beautiful example of classic public garden design from the era. The Botanical Gardens boast the talents of architect Richard Koch, William Wiedorn, and artist Enrique Alferez, three notable names. The gardens contain over 200 varieties of plants set in this antiquated and picturesque setting, so grab that beer, wine, or mint julep and settle in!

The series runs every Thursday until October 13th, from 5-8pm and the music is often a variety of Jazz, Classical, and Latin American music. This is a popular event, so get there early – seating is limited to 400 people.  $8 for adults, $3 for children age 5-12.
