We had an absolute blast at the fais do do and kick-off for Festival International, last night, at Scene Barcardi, in downtown Lafayette. For those of you who do not know what a fais do do is, it is simply a Cajun street dance, an old tradition in Cajun country.
There were two hotter than hot bands playing and the high spirited crowd was in Zydeco overdrive. Horace Trahan and The Ossun Express was up first and they were really rocking the crowd.
And there were lots of scrumptious Cajun delicacies to choose from. I just had to have some seafood jambalaya and a shrimp poboy from the Lagneaux's booth. Cest bon, cher!
And lots of drinks to choose from at the Malibu Party Center. It was quite warm and humid, so this booth was very busy. There's nothing like a nice cold drink on a hot day!
And here's a little clip that I took of the exuberant crowd and some of the nitty-gritty dancin' going on. My camera was having issues, , but it will give you an idea of all the fun that was going on. They were only warming up for this fabulous 5 day festival, so stay tuned, because there's so much more fun to come! Let the good times roll, cher! Wish you all were here! To be continued....

Wishing ya'll a fun and fantastic weekend! Merci beaucoup for stopping by!
