Bonjour Y’all!

Let me tell you about Lafayette, Louisiana. Where I spent yet another weekend at a festival, the Festival International de Louisiane. This festival is known for their variety of unique and up-an-coming performers all based from Louisiana that took place in downtown Lafayette. The festival is spread across the old downtown streets of the city where you can bar hop, shop,visit museums, enjoy local art, and their southern hospitality.

In addition to their amazing international lineup the family oriented festival also features workshops, theatre performances, art and mouth slobbering food. Influenced by France (of course), Spain and Africa. Honestly this festival’s food is the best! They had shrimp kabobs, crawfish pisolettes, shrimp friant, philly chesse steaks, pulled pork nachos, crawfish etoufee, jambalaya, gumbo, alligator balls, boudin balls….. yea! Just a couple of their options.

After a morning of steady rain spent having the most amazing brunch at The French Press. Where I had cajun benedicts…Oh lawwwd! The dish has toasted french bread, Hebert’s Boudin, two poached eggs topped with chicken, gumbo and french scallions. A must! The festival finally started at 2 p.m due to the weather. And after a couple of drinks at Marley’s Sports bar me and my girlfriend were ready to fest! With our drinks at hand because its Louisiana.

On the way back to Texas we were able to stop and take a stroll and explore the swamp lands of Louisiana.

I wish I had more pictures, but fun got in the way. Still, Lafayette’s southern hospitality is unforgettable. The music was lively, unique and international, with so many combinations of sounds! And that food thoooo, I will continue to rave about for months. We highly recommend Festival de Louisiane at Lafayette.
