Judging by the turnout, people in Acadiana were ready to party for St. Patrick's Day! Here are some scenes from Townsquare Media's Patty in the Parc 2018:

People were lined up well prior to 5pm to get in to Parc International for Patty in the Parc 2018!

Just one hour after the gates were open, this was the scene:

People were filled with the spirit of St. Patrick's Day!

The night opened with the Chee-Weez:

Romacelli's crew was working hard, but at least they had great music to work with!

The EmCee's from Townsquare Media backstage, just before the Gin Blossoms hit.

Dawn (the person who coordinated the whole evening) and JayCee backstage while the Gin Blossoms were playing.

(Side note: people frequently ask how "cool" it is to be backstage. To be honest, there's a whole lot of trying to stay out of the way of the stage crew (they work REALLY hard in a SHORT amount of time, trying to stay on schedule), and the sound isn't good backstage. You mostly only hear the drums, as most of the rest of the sound is directed towards the crowd. Frequently, people on the front row are closer to the band than we are!).

Patty in the Parc 2018 can be summed up in 3 words: So. Much. Fun!!

The Chee-Weez are always a blast, HWY 90 brought a great mix of music (they killed it with Styx's "Suite Madame Blue" as their finale!), and the Gin Blossoms were a hit!

Thank you for coming out to Patty in the Parc 2018. Corona Premiere and 360 Vodka were proud to sponsor the event, with the help of ARDCO Equipment, Greg Tilly, Romacelli, Orange Theory Fitness, Waitr, and Schilling.

Of course, the event would not have been successful without you, so THANK YOU FOR COMING TO PATTY IN THE PARC 2018!!
