Carry a pocket knife on bourbon street?

Could I carry a decent sized pocket knife while walking up and down bourbon street? Going into bars and shops? Laws down there? Never been there before.

as long as the blade is not longer than 4 inches it’s not a problem.

but wearing it say on your belt, in a holder is not recommended as the policemen/bouncers may ask you to leave it at home or in your car.

so carry it if you want but keep it in your pocket or out of sight.
