Popp Bandstand | City Park New Orleans

Popp Bandstand – New Orleans City Park

I absolutely adore old buildings.  It doesn’t matter if it’s a house or a business, the attention to detail that used to be the norm is incredible.  So when I took a drive through City Park recently, I was captivated by the different structures that dot the park and the history behind them.

City Park New Orleans - Popp's Bandstand Popp’s Bandstand was dedicated on July 4, 1917 and has been the site of many live, free musical performances over the years.  Even the March King, John Philip Sousa, led a band on this stage.

Can you imagine if you had been one of the lucky people to be there?  They probably never imagined that all of these years later, those musical arrangements would be part of our national fabric and history.
