New Orleans Day TWO!! And we're off to the Jazz & Heritage Festival, which is usually called Jazzfest. It's a huge music festival with many booths for local food & artists.
All colors and styles are welcome. No earth tone stucco homes here. If my home were painted this color someone would repaint it in the middle of the night. But in this town color is everywhere and I LOVE it.
Graffiti by the Jazzfest Entrance.
Our first Jazzfest food stop was the Cochon de Lait Po-Boy.
The day was a little rainy, within two hours it started to pour. We put on our raincoats, tried to hold down the umbrella in the wind and hid under a tent with a bowl of Yakamein.
The rain let up, but the mud was just getting started. Wading thru the good didn't stop me from reaching Sam Cortese's Roman Candy.
Me and my muddy buddy.
Our Second Po-Boy of the day, Crabby Jack's Duck Po-Boy.
There were stages for the bands but sometimes the music came to you.
'The Roots of Music’s mission is to teach, support and empower New Orleans’ youth through music education, academic support, and mentorship while preserving and promoting New Orleans’ unique musical and cultural heritage. The goal is to give the youth of New Orleans the resources to live positive, productive, self-reliant.'
Mom, I'm muddy, what happened?
Our third and final Po-Boy (of the day, not the trip, there's more to come). BBQ Shrimp Po-Boy from Liuzza's by the Track.
We passed the St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 on the walk back.
Also on our walk, the New Orleans Museum of Art & Sculpture Garden.
Both the museum and the sculpture park are located in City Park and so is....
Morning Call, again....the second time in two days and it wasn't our last.
