New Orleans will kick off Final Four events beginning Friday. Many events are family-friendly and free. All four Final Four teams will be on the field for practice with doors opening at 10 a.m. The first team to speak will be at 11 a.m. The following teams will train one hour after another until 2 p.m. The public will get the chance to see each team up close and personal. One of the biggest attractions of the entire Final Four weekend kicks off at Woldenberg Park, the March Madness Music Festival. The festival is free, but the public must register online. “They’ve got a number of local acts participating. They’ve got Lucky Day, Trombone Shorty, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, but also national acts, some big ones,” said Jeff Rossi of the Final Four organizing committee. “Imagine Dragons, Macklemore, Khalid, Kid LAROI, Arcade Fire. So they have some big names taking place in Woldenberg Park. It should be fun. There will be fireworks on Sunday night after Imagine Dragons to wrap it up.” The Final Four Fan Fest also kicks off Friday at the Morial Convention Center starting at 11 a.m. The event is fan and family friendly with a true sports wonderland filled with interactive games, celebrities and autographs. “It’s a basketball fan’s dream. There are a ton of interactive events there. There will be former basketball legends signing autographs,” Rossi said. “There will be different basketball activities, clinics, performances, interactive activities for children, basketballs of different sizes. Other sports as well.” Fan Fest is $10 for adults, but kids 13 and under get in free. The party will continue until Monday. The Final Four takes place on Saturday with the national championship game at Caesar’s Superdome on Monday night.
