On this unique tour, we'll explore the roots of New Orleans traditions surrounding the passing of a loved one. All Saints Day, Creole Mourning Rituals, Jazz Funerals and Second Line Parades will be traced to their ancestral roots, finding the connections and differences. This is not a somber, spooky tour as this is a celebration of life, a remembrance of life.
In addition to these topics, we will (as always!) include teaching points from school: erosion, map reading, analyzing primary sources, comparing and contrasting.
Our Celebrate Life Tour is targeted for kids between 8 and 12 years old.
