Festival Acadien et Creole - Day 1
An amazing day here in Cajun Country and DRY!! Day 1 of Festival Acadiens went off without a hitch! It didn't rain all day, except for a few light sprinkles and if you were dancing, it felt good! A whole lot of rosaries were said for the rain to go away and it did!!! The second day of the festival was an absolute blast and the music was INCREDIBLE! I took a lot of pics and videos, but no time to upload, now. The crowd was electric and highly charged and there was some of the best dancing going on that I've ever seen. Lawd have mercy ! Fun, oh so fun!! It rained steadily all night last night, so the festival park was quite muddy. This was turning into a Cajun Woodstock , more than ever, with all the slipping and sliding and dancing in the mud.
Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas were driving the crowd wild, with some of the best bayou blues/zydeco/jitterbug boogie!
Balfa Toujours was hot as jalapeno peppers, with their highly seasoned, traditional Cajun dance music, and lots of two-steps.
And Jimmy C. Newman and Jo-el Sonnier brought the house down.
And Bon Creole was the pick for Shrimp and Crawfish Poboys.
And the seafood etouffee from Fezzos was out of this world! And the best part is that we get to do the whole thing all over again, tomorrow! Lassiez les bon temps rouler! Oh the life of a Cajun is, oh, so fun!!! Hope that ya'll are having fun, too! Merci for coming by, cher and stay tuned!!!
