It's that time of year again... time to boogie down at Gretna Fest 2012! Sure you can set out lawn chairs on Tchoupitoulis and listen to the music carry across the mighty Mississippi, but hopping on the ferry and heading over to historic downtown Gretna will be so much more fun. Some of the big names include Foreigner, Joe Cockers, and Big & Rich, but we're excited about the fest lineup that's teeming with some of our favorite local artists. Below is a sampling, but be sure to follow the links to our online music calendar for the each day's full schedule!
