One of my oldest and dearest girl-friends came into town on Friday and we started off at Agave Mexican Restaurant and Cantina for a frozen Margarita, before heading to the first show of the evening. And on the way over we walked through the Marche' du Monde, an International Arts and Crafts marketplace. And as usual, I couldn't resist buying a dress from my favorite booth and a cute little handbag, too.
Then it was time for the show and Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys were taking the stage when we arrived. There was a huge crowd and people were dancing in the aisles and anywhere else they could find.
There is usually a large area right in front of the stage that is marked off for dancing, but for some reason it was eliminated this year. So, it kinda gave a new meaning to "your 2 square feet of dance floor".
Here's a little clip that I took of the hot two-steppin' going on at Scene Chevron. The Krewe de Canaille was out in full force.This one's for you, Sandy! Lookin' good, girl!

After all this dancin', we were in dire need of refreshment and we headed over to the LUS Pavillion de Cuisine. The lines were long, but I finally managed to get this Crawfish-Spinach Bread Bowl and downed it along with 2 bottles of water. Divine! Click here for my recipe for this Cajun treat.
Then, it was on to Scene TV 5 Monde, to see the Rythym and Roots Review with artists from Quebec, Cameroon, France, and New Brunswick. This was a fantastic show and there was a beautiful breeze.
By Day 4 of this festival, you're really in a groove and it seems like you can't remember what your life was like, before the festival. Means you're having a blast! We started out at Scene Popeyes for Keith Frank and the Solieau Zydeco Band. Since it was Saturday, and the first full day, there was an enormous crowd and they were in full party mode!

Afterwards, it was warm and humid and we decided to cool off at The Filling Station Pub and Grille. A nice cold beer with one of my favorites that I picked up along the way, Crawfish Nachos. Cest bon, cher!
After resting a little while, it was time for the next show, with Feufollet rockin the crowd, back at the Boomer Tent, better known as Scene Chevron. One of my faves and so much fun!
The crowd was lovin' this band and there was a whole lot of boogie-in' going on. They were really cranking it up, just as the sun was going down. I ran into one of my old gal pals from Zachary and want to dedicate this next clip to her. This one's for you, Dodie!
To be continued..... Yes, there's more, so stay tuned for the finale' because I'm saving the best for last! Meanwhile if you want to see more of my videos, you can go here, to my YouTube channel. And be sure and rest up, because we have the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival, coming up THIS WEEKEND, and you won't want to miss it! Lassiez les bon temps rouler!
Wishing you all a wonderful week, filled with good times! Merci beaucoup for stopping by!
