It’s here! The 2012 edition of the Festival International de Louisiane is this week (April 25-29) in downtown Lafayette, LA. And it looks like the weather will be awesome with highs in the low 80s!
I’ve been involved with Festival International for many years. I began by working security so I could get back stage with the bands I wanted to see. Then I became a presenter and introduced the bands. For the past 3 years, I have been a member of the Board of Directors and during Festival week, I am in charge of the golf carts used by our organization to put the Festival together. Volunteering for Festival is a lot of fun. If you would like to get involved, it is not too late. Visit the Festival International web site to sign up as a volunteer or to view this year’s schedule of events. Volunteers can also visit our Volunteer Center during Festival (it opens Wed. at 4pm).
Also, don’t forget to download your Festival App and buy a pin this weekend. The app is free and the pin is only $10 and it allows us to keep this great Festival free!
