Time for Downtown Alive
It's that time again for that wonderful Spring concert series in downtown Lafayette, better known as Downtown Alive. It's a huge block party held on Friday evenings at Parc International or Parc Sans Souci where there is a whole lotta awesome music and nitty-gritty dancin' going on. After the very cold winter that we've had in Cajun country and a stellar line up, it promises to be the best yet. Here's a little clip of Horace Trahan and the Ossun Express rockin' the crowd at last year's Downtown Alive.
Happy Spring, Ya'll! Hope all of you have a funtastic weekend! Merci beaucoup for stopping by!
