Royal Sonesta Hotel New Orleans says
Join Us for the 46th Annual Greasing of the Poles in front of the hotel's main entrance on Bourbon Street!

Royal Sonesta New Orleans organized this long standing tradition of greasing the support poles as a means to deter over-zealous revelers from shimmying up to the coveted balcony space above.

The festivities begin at 10:00 a.m. in front of the Hotel's main entrance with a brass band to get things rolling in the Carnival spirit. Zulu Royalty are in attendance as well as local dignitaries and special guests. The actual Greasing is a competitive event where four celebrity greasers apply petroleum jelly to the wrought iron poles and creatively vie for top votes from our panel of judges.

An "only in New Orleans" experience not to be missed.

Free and open to the public.
