Living History

Check out Vandal O'Riley, aka Josie Arlington, this weekend off skates and in a corset in the French Quarter. Vandal is part of The Louisiana Living History Project that teaches locals and visitors about some of the amazing individuals who helped shape this city's fascinating history. The group gathers at the Hotel Monteleone at 11AM and departs into the French Quarter. A good place to watch for them is in front of the St. Louis Cathedral before and after Mass on Christmas Day. Some of the other characters include Marie Laveau, Andrew Jackson and Baroness Pontalba. Papa Noel also joins the festivities.
