And you’ll want to be there to kick off the 50th anniversary celebration of our Reflections Program.

The Palooza stage will feature performances by a New Orleans second line band, student group Make Music NOLA and Reflections winners. Come and have your face painted, experiment with hands on STEM activities, make a Mardi Gras mask and attempt our obstacle course!
