Festival International De Louisiane is here! Activities commenced on Wednesday in downtown Lafayette.

The award winning festival will hold its opening ceremonies tonight (Thursday) at 7 in Parc International. The available variety of music, food, and art is as eclectic as ever. I downloaded the app and browsed the schedule to make some decisions about who I want to see perform.  While I was doing so, my daughter called to inquire when Marc Broussard will be performing. I'm scheduled for a live broadcast at the festival on Saturday, from noon 'til 2pm. Mia Borders is slated to be onstage during that time. I'd like to catch at least part of her set.  I'm also interested in seeing Oliver Mtukudzi & The Black Spirits. Who's on your list?
