PRAL New Orleans March Luncheon: Celebrating Louisiana's Bicentennial
New Orleans will serve as the inaugural city in a three-year national celebration commemorating the War of 1812 and the Star Spangled Banner. The 2012 celebration will take place April 17 – 23, 2012, featuring a colorful spectacle of ships spreading on the East Bank of the Mississippi River from Erato Street to Upper Poland Avenue. Additionally, the Navy's famed Blue Angels will perform a memorable air show over Lake Ponchartrain as part of the week's festivities. New Orleans was chosen as the host city for the opening events marking the 200th anniversary of what has been referred to as "America's Second War for Independence." The three-year celebration will also end in New Orleans where the last battle of the war was fought.
Join PRAL as we learn about New Orleans’ unique role as a host city and how your organizations can contribute to the celebration.
