We spent this weekend at the Long Beach Bayou Festival 2004. It was a whole week-end of Cajun food, music and dancing, located in the Queen Mary Events Park, with a nice view of the Queen Mary herself and the Pacific ocean.
It was a weekend full of very good Blues, Cajun and Zydeco bands from New Orleans. The large outdoor dancing floor was always crowded either with people dancing to the bands, or learning dance moves from the many dance instructors.
Each day there was a mini Mardi Gras parade, complete with brass band and all. It was quite a sight. All the costumes were made by themselves.
The main attraction could as well have been the food. There was quite a few very interesting food stores selling good Cajun food, from jambalaya, to gumbo, crawfish, catfish and more. We both enjoyed the many varied food more than once.
