While the possibility of afternoon showers threatened last Saturday’s Jazz Fest celebration, the day turned out to be a hot but beautiful one—one full of breathtaking music, incredible food and all the friendly passersby you could meet wishing you a “Happy Fest!”
The walk up to the Fairgrounds from your parking spot is one of the unspoken moments of fest fun. Together you join ample fellow walkers all streaming from different tree-lined blocks, some carrying chairs, others carrying beers in coozies and others carrying nothing but the bright, summery clothes on their backs. You know that the excitement of Jazz Fest is in the air and all around you.
I always have to run to my favorite food first. Folks don’t realizr that some of the food at the fest can only be found at the fest. So not only are you anxious to see some good music, your taste buds are screaming for Mango Sorbet, Crawfish Strudel, Crawfish Monica …just to name a few of my favorites. And the strudel is as good as always!
