FYI!!! If you need an idea to take a trip and like music and good food. This might be for you.

 

My home town/area(Acadiana) has festivals almost all year for everything you can think of from rice to crawfish to boudin to froglegs. Every festival is just another reason to party with beer, food and bands but today one of the biggest besides Mardi Gras starts.

 

It's called Festival International de Louisiane. It's one big drunk fest with awesome live music and you already know about Louisiana food.

 

Festival International de Louisiane is a non-profit organization that produces the largest international music and arts festival in the United States with a special emphasis on the connection between Acadiana and the Francophone world and an estimated economic impact of 49 million annually.   With over 300,000 festival goers every year, the annual festival features musical performances by artists from over 20 countries along with workshops, exhibits, visual art, theater and other forms of performance arts.   The 5-day festival is held in April transforming downtown Lafayette, Louisiana into an entertainment mecca.

 

Check out the music line up.

That's a good size crowd considering you're competing with JazzFest.

Man, this is my hardest/longest week of work...I gotta stop working in restaurants downtown.

I might get a little time to see half a band or two.

 

Definitely my favorite festival ever.  Been going since I was two years old.  Seen so many awesome bands I've never heard of from all different countries.
