Mid-City Bayou Bugaloo

Like most other New Orleans festivals, Bayou Boogaloo features music, food, arts and handicrafts and other sensory delights. It goes on for three days and stages are set up in several widely separated locations so the music on one stage doesn't clash with another. Fest-goers can leisurely stroll about, grab some great New Orleans signature food items and a cold drink and go sit by the waterside and enjoy it, along with the music of some of the city's top bands. A separate section of the festival site, on the neutral ground (median) of Jefferson Davis Parkway is designated for craft booths where talented artists and artisans display and sell their works.

The entire festival is free and open to the public. Large portions of the proceeds from sales at the festival go toward charitable organizations and events.

For a schedule of events and other information, go to the festival's website at www.thebayouboogaloo.com.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
