 More Festival Fun

 We had an absolute blast at Festival International this past weekend. Fabulous Cajun food, music, and fun! Here's a little clip that I took at the Chevron Stage of Leroy Thomas and the Zydeco Roadrunners rockin' the crowd.  The high spirited crowd was in overdrive, along with the band, and I thought that the roof was going to blow off! LOL

What a super fabulous menu dream
Somebody shout, somebody scream !!
Spicy Creole Party Dips
Would easily pass through my lips.
Very tasty and highly nutritious
Certainly sinfully delicious
I'd stuff my face with more and more
And dance with you lots, and galore.
You Cajuns know always have such fun
It goes on for days . . and never done.
I think I must have some Cajun blood
Because the rhythm and beat make me feel good.
Did I hear the singer shout "Somebody Scream ?"
And a loud yell coud be heard on the video screen.

Great fun Marguerite
A Real treat and very sweet.
