More Festival Fun - Day 2!
We passed a great time at day two of Festival International and the weather was gorgeous, sunny and 80 degrees, with a light breeze and low humidity.! A little cool front blew in the night before, making it feel more like California than Louisiana. The festival angels were with us, as they usually are at this festival. We started out at the official Opening Ceremonies at Scene International. Special thanks went out to the 1500 + volunteers that make this festival happen.
Then, one of my dear, old friends came on the stage and blew everyone's mind with his unique brand of slide guitar magic. The one and only Sonny Landreth was getting down! Geaux Sonny! The huge crowd really went wild for this show and Sonny and his talented band were rockin'! I took five videos of this show and will be posting them all on my You Tube channel, so you can catch them here next week. I am posting one of the shorter ones below. Fab!
The Sonny Landreth Band
After this fabulous performance, I was famished and we headed over to the Norbert's Restaurant booth, where I decided to sample the crawfish etouffee, topped with fried catfish! Oh, cest bon, cher!
Then I got a text message from friends wanting us to meet them at the New Orleans Original Daquiri's booth, for a Festival Punch, before heading to the next concert, at Scene Malibu. Yum!
And as the sun was setting over Lafayette, we arrived just in time to see Rootz Underground, a fantastic Reggae band from Jamaica, take the stage.The huge, rowdy crowd was raring to go!
It was so crowded that I could barely wiggle my way in far enough to take this clip, but I managed to take a short one, just before my camera batteries went out! It seemed more like they blew up! LOL
Oh the life of a Cajun is oh, so fun!
Stay tuned, the best is yet to come! To be continued.....
Hope ya'll have a fun and fabulous weekend!
