This Weekend in New Orleans: Food Trucks, Weiner Dogs & First Fridays

Spring is on its way to New Orleans.  The damp cold is slipping away and the sticky heat is slowly trickling in. It’s a quick and energetic spring before the summertime lulls us into the heat-induced coma of the slow season. 

But for now, there’s still tons of fun events going on around the city. Popular game show Dancing with the Stars brings their live tour to the Saenger Theater tonight. Tomorrow, the Pelicans play a home game, and NOLA Brewing celebrates eleven years of beer. 

If you’re in need of some festival season wear, check out the Festival Market at the Drifter on Saturday. And on Sunday, the wellness group MindTravel stops by City Park to host a meditative SilentWalk journey. 

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