It’s a Party for Monte the Lion and You’re Invited!
Hotel Monteleone celebrates Monte’s birthday with Gumbo, Hugo and friends

New Orleans, LA (May 9, 2011) – Monte the Lion, a friendly mountain lion and the official mascot for the Hotel Monteleone, is having a birthday party with his local mascot friends on Saturday, June 11 from 10am - noon and is inviting all children and families to join in on the fun!

Monte the Lion is one of the most loved – and most cuddly - members of the Hotel Monteleone family. Children attending the party will have the chance to take pictures with Monte on his birthday and play with his mascot friends including Gumbo from the New Orleans Saints, Hugo from the New Orleans Hornets, Boudreaux from the New Orleans Zephyrs, Riptide from Tulane University and Havoc from Loyola University.

A birthday cupcake making station will sweeten the mood along with food, pictures and games. As a special birthday treat, Monte the Lion will premiere his very own children’s book and will sign copies for all party goers.

“Monte the Lion can’t stop roaring about his birthday celebration with his fellow mascots and friends,” said Andrea Thornton, director of sales and marketing. “This will not only be a special day for him, but it will be a treat for everyone at the party and the Hotel Monteleone family as we see the tale of Monte the Lion come to life in his very own story book.”

Tickets to the birthday party are $25 per person (all taxes, gratuities and fees are included). Everyone who purchases a ticket will have the chance to win four tickets to “Shrek the Musical” at the Mahalia Jackson Theater and to meet the characters live. “Shrek the Musical” will be in New Orleans May 31 – June 5.

For more information on Monte’s birthday party and to purchase tickets, please call 1-504-681-4452 or visit http://hotelmonteleone.com/montebirthday/.
