We had an absolute bon ton at the kick-off party for Festival Acadiens, on Friday evening, at Parc International in downtown Lafayette. The Lost Bayou Ramblers were rockin' the crowd, and the dancers were really cutting the rug!
On Saturday, the party moved over to Girard Park for the first day of the 28th annual Festival Acadiens et Creole. Gorgeous, summer-like weather brought out thousands of festival goers and you cannot imagine the fun that was being had!
The main stage, Scene Ma Louisiane, had a terrific musical line-up, and was partially in the shade. With temps. around 90 degrees, this was a major attraction.
The drink booths were working overtime and the Bayou Food Festival was serving up more than a few Cajun delights. Here were a few of my faves.
The third stage, La Salle De Danse was attracting a large crowd. It had a big tent, fans, and a wooden dance floor. A nice respite from the intense Louisiana sun.
Walter Mouton and the Scott Playboys were getting down, cher and there was a whole lotta dancin' going on inside of that tent!
The dance area at Scene Heritage was in full afternoon sun, but that didn't stop these Cajuns from kickin' up some dust. They were pulling out all the stops for Roddie Romero and the Hub City Allstars! Burning off some calories, for sure!
Since this video was taken in full sun, it's not the best quality, but will give you an idea of the nitty-gritty dancin that was going on, cher!. I took so many videos, that it's a miracle my camera didn't blow up!
