It feels like living in New Orleans is just a series of distractions. Once we got through the holidays, we had Mardi Gras, followed by St. Patrick's Day, French Quarter Fest and JazzFest, with all sorts of other festivals sprinkled between. I've started a post-JazzFest diet to work off off the food and libations that go along with said distractions. For me though, JazzFest is the BEST distracation of all. You can't beat the variety of music, food and arts & crafts. This year there was no rain the entire time - first time that's happened in 12 years.
|Thursday, Day 2 for us.|
|Gentilly Stage the second Saturday, day 3 for us.|
|Sunscreen and hats are very important.|
|The Decemberist rocked the Fais Do Do stage the first Sunday.|
Am I worried? Eh, not yet. Though I was thinking now would be a good time to make sure our "disaster kit" is up to date.
To come: my JazzFest schedule.
