It's feeling a like warm festival weekend across the New Orleans area and we've got some big ones. Along the banks of Bayou St. John, it's the ever-expanding Bayou Boogaloo. Festival Coordinator Jared Zeller is bracing for a lot of folks.
''We're expecting some 30,000 people over the weekend with lots of food and beverages to purchase,'' he said.
Along with great music and dozens of art sellers, there is plenty to eat.
''Anything from po-boys to shrimp pies and meat pies, anything to make your mouth water,'' said Zeller.
