Downtown Alive Turns 25!

The 2008' schedule for the, 25th Anniversary, fall concert series for Downtown Alive has been announced. Every Spring and Fall, for the past 25 years, people have been flocking to downtown Lafayette, every Friday evening, to enjoy the best in Cajun, Zydeco, Rock and Roll, and Swamp Pop music.

Delicious food and cold beverages are sold for those opting to go straight from work. And especially for those who work up an appetite, while dancing at the fais do do, (street dance) This year's line up features Rockin' Dopsie, Jr., who will play the season opener on September 5th, just as his father, Rockin' Dopsie, Sr. did , for the fall 1983 series.
