New Orleans Magical French Quarter

New Orleans Magical French Quarter is filled with talent and each block offers a different and wonderful form of entertainment. At nearby Jackson Square you can  listen to great blues, learn your future from a tarot card reader, and watch a mime or magician entertain a delighted crowd.  There is never a dull moment.

The music is the true soul of the Quarter.

A trio of musicians in the French Quarter plays some fine hurtin’ music for cash. This trio uses a child’s potty chair to receive donations and has decorated it with fake dog poo. Who can resist donating to such quality sounds and wit!
