So far this summer, we've celebrated Oysters, Creole Tomatoes, and Cajun & Zydeco music, and that's just in the French Quarter.
It may be steamy-n-sticky, but the music just gets better as the temperature increases. Check out some of the exciting music festivals and other diversions in and around greater New Orleans and south Louisiana this summer. And don't forget to drink lots. Of water, of water!
