What airport should I fly into?

If you are going to fly in, you want to fly into the Louis Armstrong Airport also known as MSY. We will be providing Lyft credits to and from the airport if you need a ride. Once you download the lyft app, you want to go into the Rewards section, enter the code NOLAGATHERING21. You will get $15 off your ride. It can be used going to and from the airport from these locations: City Park, Bud’s Broiler, Defy New Orleans, and All Star Gymnastics. We are aware that everyone will not be coming at the same time, so we have added all of these locations so that you can come to the gathering when it’s convenient for you!

What transportation is available?

Airport pickups and drop offs will be available through Lyft. There will be many gathering participants with cars if you need to get a ride from location to location.
