Friday means party time in Cajun Country, and this week is no exception. That's right, a special, lagniappe' edition, (make-up, rain-out show), starring Acadiana's own "Bayou Boys" continued the 25th anniversary edition of Downtown Alive, tonight in downtown Lafayette. It was a great surprise, since last Friday was supposed to be the last concert of the Spring series. Starting to get too hot for outdoor dancing, so for the next few months we'll have to find a nice air conditioned dance hall to dance in, which is not a problem here in Cajun Country.
We started out at Agave Mexican Grille and Cantina for a Margarita happy hour and a fabulous dinner of Grilled Seafood Fajitas. Despite the hot weather we've been having, (inching up into the mid-nineties), there was a huge crowd at tonight's T.G.I.F. block party in Parc Sans Souci. You never know who you're going to run into at this event or what person from your past, that you haven't seen in 20 years, is going to pop up. Old friends, new friends, and family know that they can catch up on the latest at the T.G.I.F block party with just about everyone they know and ever knew once. That's part of the fun of this Cajun tradition.
Once the sun started going down, the dancing started getting hot and you could almost see steam coming off the dance floor. The last hoorah until September for Downtown Alive. The mood was almost frantic, as everyone who had a stressful work week started to unwind. The hotter than Habenero, Bayou Boys were really jammin' and playing their Louisiana Cajun, Zydeco, Swamp Pop, and R&B blend of fantastic dance music. We partied with these guys for Mardi Gras and they are a blast, cher! Have a fabulous, fun weekend, my dear bloggie friends! Let the good times roll!! The Bayou Boys
