"There is no better time to live in and visit New Orleans,"
said Mark Romig, President and CEO of NOTMC.
Simulcast live on Magic 101.9 FM and WWL AM and FM and WWL.com, the NOLA New Year’s Eve celebration will be enjoyed in more than 38 states across the U.S. and on the worldwide web. At the stroke of midnight, the fireworks display will illuminate the sky and be choreographed to soulful New Orleans music. Also included will be the fight songs of our visiting Sugar Bowl teams. As the Alabama and Oklahoma fight songs play, the sky will light up in the teams’ colors!
The Crescent City Countdown Club is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization formed after Hurricane Katrina exclusively to preserve and produce New Orleans’ traditional New Year’s Eve festivities in the French Quarter. “A NOLA New Year’s Eve is truly a community effort and a tribute to the big hearts and resilient souls of the people of New Orleans,” says CCCC Treasurer Adrienne Thomas. “Without sponsorships from dedicated community businesses, there could be no New Year’s Eve celebration here.”
