So Ketchup already!
Believe me I'm a trying.
I attended the 26th Annual Bayou Boogaloo & Cajun Food Festival
Town Point Park, Norfolk, VA.
I wanted to thank the Bayou Boogaloo in Norfolk, VA because they brought us up there and really took care of us New Orleanians. It was hotter then HOT up there and they kept on bringing the ice out to us for the entire fest not to mention the plethora of other things they did for us.
|Jill, Chris, Sam, Brandii, Alan, and Morgan|
And many thanks to our fearless leader, Morgan of the Arts Council of New Orleans. She made sure we weren't FREAKING out.
I was very happy with my booth and how the lights set a different mood. FUN!!! But I have got to figure out how to hang my name there. Maybe use Velcro or something. I'm currently using tacks and making holes all over the place! And did I tell you zip ties are AWESOME!!!
Here is Ken Nahan and wife Nancy. Ken was the poster artist this year for the fest.
Love that crawfish!
At the end we managed to find the cool mister.
We were in Nirvana and all was right in that very moment.
Here are a few of my compadres. We were on our way back home to New Orleans with a packed lunch from Ms. Laura, Dancing Tomato. Ms. Laura asked for our orders and then sent us on the bus with a box lunch!
I have no words. I was so grateful for this kindness. I had no time in the morning to scramble for breakfast or lunch and would have been grumpy on the bus but instead my stomach was filled full of LOVE!
Merci beaucoup Ms. Laura!
Thanks everyone for making my first Boogaloo a memorable one! Also, a BIG thank you to everyone who came out and supported handmade. You all made it worth it!
I cannot wait to go back.
Here's a link that lists all who were at the festival this year.
Guess that's a wrap.
Next weeks post will be about making lip balm. Whaaaaat???
