No, New Orleans isn’t hosting a film festival. But from the endless star sightings all weekend long, you’d think Sundance had relocated to the south.

With just over 12 hours to go before kickoff and the start of Super Bowl XLVII, Celebuzz is taking a look at some of the big names that have taken part in football themed parties, charity matches and concerts in the host city.

On Friday night, Channing Tatum was spotted hanging out above the famous Bourbon Street with some pals. Like everyone else, the Side Effects actor held onto a few strings of beads.

From Ian Somerhalder to Katharine McPhee, Neil Patrick Harris to Lil Wayne, the stars showed off their football skills at DIRECTV’s 7th annual Celebrity Beach Bowl at the DTV SuperFan Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Super Bowl weekend has also been graced with the presence of supermodels.

Victoria’s Secret beauty Candice Swanepoel brought an AXE Astronaut as her date to Friday’s Rolling Stone LIVE party at the Bud Light Hotel while Sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigen hit the field for Saturday’s star-studded beach bowl.

In other sightings, Will Ferrell and Anna Faris hammed it up for the cameras at an event presented by Audi while Jeremy Piven put on his serious face during a Super Bowl press conference earlier in the week.

Check out the gallery, above, for the hottest star sightings from Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. Are you looking forward to Sunday’s match between the Ravens and the 49ers?
