April is Festival Month – My New Orleans

FêtEs for all
My New Orleans
Living in South Louisiana, and New Orleans in particular, means that we have festivals and other such celebrations year-round. Mardi Gras leads into St. Patrick’s Day, and so on, and so on. But the month that seems to be the height of festival madness is April, which includes the Pontchatoula Strawberry Festival, French Quarter Festival, Festival International de Louisiane and Jazz Fest (more formally known as the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival). Of course, that’s not all the festivals in Louisiana this month (you also have your choice of Cajun Hot Sauce Festival in New Iberia, Washington Catfish Festival in Washington, or the Bayou Teche Bear Festival in Franklin.) But for the sake of your wallet and waistline, we’ve pared it down to the first four listed above for this article.
