Tourists refer to New Orleans as “The Big Easy” but locals call it “The Crescent City”. In this episode of Bump! experience the magic of New Orleans, “Black Magic,” that is. We discover that Voodoo is alive and well and that cemetery tours are a big draw for visitors. Bump! goes deep into the Louisiana Bayou in pursuit of wildlife in its natural habitat and then heads back to dry land where we take in another kind of “wildlife” in the French Quarter, where every day is Mardi Gras! Don’t expect last call in this town, it’s party time 24/7! The publishers of Ambush Magazine give us the inside scoop on two of New Orlean’s hugely popular annual gay events: the wild and bacchanalian Southern Decadence festival and the Gay Easter Parade. Join us on a gay heritage tour of the hometown of famous locals like Ellen DeGeneres, Tennessee Williams and Truman Capote, to name a few. And, no visit to the Crescent City is complete without savouring Cajun Creole cuisine, as we visit with the chef of the popular Red Fish Grill.
