This Weekend in New Orleans: Luna Fête, Audubon Zoo Lights, 12 Dives of Christmas & More

Happy weekend New Orleans! It’s time for another weekly roundup of all our favorite shows, festivals and general going-on around the greatest city in the world.

The annual Luna Fête festival of lights, technology, and art returns to the CBD, and the zoo gets an electric makeover with Audubon Zoo Lights.

Cher is coming to town this Saturday at the Smoothie King Center. 1788-L helps the Republic celebrate their 14th Anniversary, and Bear Grillz stops by the Howlin Wolf.

If you’re looking to get on the naughty list this year, the 12 Dives of Christmas bar crawl would be a fun place to start. But if you’d rather get some gift shopping done, there are plenty of local artists’ markets to check out. 

Check out these & all our other picks from this weekend in New Orleans:
