Downtown Alive! Tonight Features a Tribute to Rockin’ Dopsie, Sr.
The spring season of Downtown Alive! is in full swing and tonight you'll want to bring your dancing shoes as the show features a tribute to the "Crown Prince of Zydeco", Alton Rubin, aka Rockin' Dopsie.
Dopsie Sr. was one of the first musicians to play the stage at DTA! and the tribute show will feature music by his sons: Dwayne, Tiger, Anthony, and David (who performs as Rockin' Dopsie Jr.).
Downtown Alive! tonight will take place at Parc Sans Souci in downtown Lafayette. The party starts at 5:00 pm with the DTA! Happiest Hour, and the music starts at 6:00 pm.
Concession sales help keep DTA! free, so don’t be a mooch and buy DTA! hootch. Please leave your ice chests at home with your pets.
DTA! is a smoke-free and family-friendly event. As a reminder, parking is available at Parc-Auto du Centreville Garage with free metered street parking after 5:00 pm.
