It's that time again for our biggest and best festival of the year. The 28th annual Festival International de Louisiane kicked off last night with a Fais Do Do in downtown Lafayette. Geno Delafose and French Rockin' Boogie were rockin' the huge crowd and there was a whole lotta nitty-gritty dancin' going on. The free 5 day festival will continue on until Sunday evening with 6 music stages and over 100 performances. Here's a little clip that I took of the crowd dancing to a favorite Cajun waltz. For a complete schedule, click here.
Happy Festival, Ya'll! Merci beaucoup for stopping by!
