With another year of generous community support, our spirited city can welcome 2015 with live New Orleans music, a unique fleur de lis drop, and the midnight fireworks display over the Mighty Mississippi River. The celebration begins at the Decatur Street City Stage with a performance by Sam's Funcky Nation from 9:30 to 10:15 p.m. Terrance Simien + the Zydeco Experience will follow at 10:45 to 11:45 p.m. After that time we will count down together to midnight to launch the fleur de lis drop and the fireworks Symphony in the Sky to welcome .
Watch as the 8-foot tall by 5-foot wide two-dimensional fleur de lis descends a 25-foot pole atop Jax Brewery Condominiums to launch the exquisite Symphony in the Sky. Made of plywood with weather-treated cloth stretched over the frame, the fleur de lis a symbol of New Orleans’ courage, is adorned with aluminum ribbons and LED lights, making it easier to view from both sides. A 6-foot high by 4-foot wide “New Year” board will light up with two hundred 25-watt clear bulbs announcing the official arrival of the new year.
