Weekend Full Of Fun Stuff To Do
There is quite a bit going on around the city this weekend. Lots of fun to be had by all:
There is the annual Greek Festival. This is an event I look forward to every year. The food is great! The slow roasted lamb is something I look forward to every year almost as much as the Baklava Sundaes. There is always plenty of shade and good family friendly entertainment. This year I will be running in the 5k Race (for fun, not competition) this evening at 7:00. Something else that I want to check out this year is the canoe rentals. A canoe ride down Bayou St. John could be a lot of fun.
The second event that I will be hitting up is the Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo. This is a free, all-day event being held at Orleans Ave. and Bayou St. John, on Saturday. I have never been to this before. I am not quite sure if it is an annual event, or something new this year. It looks like it will be great. There is an incredible variety of bands playing. Everything from Blues to Caribbean. From Brazilian to Jazz. From Reggae to Rock. There will be vendors out there selling beer and other good stuff. The Mid-City Art Market will be relocating to the Bayou Boogaloo for this weekend as well. You can’t beet all of that entertainment for free. Courtesy of MCNO
Anybody know of any other fun stuff going on this weekend?
UPDATE: Here are some pictures I took at the Bayou Boogaloo.
