French Quarter Festival Poster Features Joan!

People have been mentioning this poster to me for weeks, and my friend Marci, director of the French Quarter Festival, just sent me a copy! As I told her, it so brilliantly represents how Joan is both past and future...

I'm also utilizing this perfect visual union of Joan with the French Quarter Festival to encourage the Fest to extend their Christmas New Orleans Style to Twelfth Night, so their events might include the Joan of Arc Parade as well as our soon-to-be-unveiled Joan of Arts Fete, a two day festival of Joan activities leading up to the parade (details to be posted soon!)

As I said to Marci, after all, Christmas doesn't end until Twelfth Night!

In the meantime, be sure to enjoy the French Quarter Festival. It's free, the weather's always ideal, and you can visit Joan while down in the Quarter listening to jazz, blues, classical music, Zydeco, Cajun, and more! It's a wonderful way to reconnect with the French Quarter...just like the Joan of Arc Parade.
