3rd Annual "Best Fest"
What do you get when you take the "Best Bakery" in Lafayette and team it up with the "Best Law Firm"? "Best Fest", with a free hamburger, along with free entertainment! Every year The Times of Acadiana, a local entertainment newspaper, conducts a poll of the "BEST OF" everything and residents cast their ballets. The Glenn Armentor Law Firm was voted #1 for the third year in a row. And Southside Bakery, which is also a restaurant, was not only voted the #1 bakery, but has won, hands down, for "Best Hamburgers" for 3 years in a row. To show his appreciation for this prestigeous honor, Mr. Armentor generously offered to pick up the tab for these #1 hamburgers to the first 2500 people to arrive at the #1 bakery. Only in Lafayette!
Thousands turned out and stood in the sweltering 95 degree heat for a chance for a free hamburger. The line was all the way around the building, with more arriving every minute!
There was a nice big tent set up, with free bottled water and huge fans. Wish that we could have these at our festivals. Dozens of prizes were given away and there was live entertainment.Jamie Bergeron and the Kickin' Cajuns were rockin' the crowd, who were also voted "Best Band" in Acadiana. Here's a little clip I took of them, boogie-ing down at the Best Fest!
Hope you're all having a wonderful summer weekend! Merci beaucoup for coming by!
