Gator By the Bay Zydeco, Cajun and Blues festival in San Diego

If you love to dance and love the food and music of Lousiana this is the weekend trip to San Diego you don't want to miss. It's Mother's Day weekend so give her a weekend she won't forget while enjoying yourself as well.  The venue is right across from the airport if you fly in and the Hotel is right on the grounds as well.

 Reserve your room now before all the good ones are gone.  Make sure you get one in the Marina tower so you can walk right to the festival.  (get them now you can always cancel later)SPECIAL 2013 FESTIVAL RATES AVAILABLE NOW!
Free Airport pick-up!

to book a room.


Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina
1380 Harbor Island Drive, San Diego, CA 92101

The venue is Huge and has two huge covered tents with a great dance floor.  There are other stages as well that are in the shade and a few in the sun.

The line up this year is amazing. Geno Delafose and the French Rockin Boogie are a number one favorite in Lousiana and Lil Wayne and the Same O' Two Step are my all time favorite. They are so cute to look at too!

 * Good idea to bring a folding chair.

So lets get some discussion going in this group and get some carpools going and share some rooms. I have mine reserved so can add 1-2 females.  I have a flight already booked but may be willing to drive if many want to come. I do have a 7 passenger van.

    I don't have a set agenda but I'll be hanging out near the blues stages (Bourbon st & fountain stage) first thing Friday once I get my beer and gumbo. I'll start heading to the Zydeco stages probably around 5:30.

    TS - Check with Phoenix Singles as they also have a group going setup by Kim that may be able to accommodate you.

    That's great there is a group of you going to the festival!! It would be neat to meet you guys if it works into your schedule. I will be at the Bon Temps Dance Pavilion (the dance instruction tent) at 6:30pm Friday night. (will be standing next to the DJ area)

    I will be teaching a beginning Zydeco lesson at the same stage at 6:45pm until 7:30pm if your interested in taking the lesson..

    If you don't make it till Saturday I will be at the Bon Temps Dance Pavilion at 1pm. (standing next to the DJ area).. Hope we get a chance to connect but if not I will also be going through Phoenix about the 22nd or 23rd of May to possibly do an event.

    I can't afford too fly, maybe I'll take a bus. I want to attend the Long Beach Festival because its on my birthday. I also e-mailed both events and they will have jam sessions and workshops for musicians that I can participate in. I know a lady who owns a travel agency maybe she can get me cheaper tickets for the bus, I have flown before and I'm terrified of flying. just a chicken I guess.
