“Mermaids and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

When we went, there was an Indie festival going on and it was great! Lots of music, food, mermaid statues. We had a beautiful day/beautiful weather, thankfully. Everything was very clean and there were a lot of police, so we felt very safe.

“Moon Festival”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Each Sept. there is a Moon Festival at Town Point Park. They have other festivals throughout the year, but this is my favorite. They have super awesome kung fu and Tai Chi demos, lion dancer, dragon dancing and other traditional Chinese arts. Good food and lots of fun for the whole famiy. Best part is when Jow Ga Kung Fu school performs, best I have ever seen.

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I enjoyed sitting at a table and watching my kids run through the fountains. There's a nice selection of restaurants and a harbor cruise in walking distance.

“Great place to enjoy a festival”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We had a great time at Town Point Park June 21-23 for the Bayou Boogaloo New Orleans festival.
Park is so clean and well-maintained, and being right at the boat dock on the river gives you great views and cool breezes. Outdoor stage has excellent terraced lawn so that you have great sight lines to the stage from front to back. Park personnel (security, entrance gate staff, grounds crew) were friendly and "on the ball." Vendors at the arts and crafts tents all seemed very happy with the place as well.
