Then we headed downtown to North Blvd, where we have the Mystic Krewe of Mutts Parade actually, and listened to some jazzy Jazz. There were two stages set up and the performers alternated between the two so the spectators had to move between them about 50 feet. We had a place backstage and had a bird's eye view of everything, shade and all. The temps were perfect, warm in the sun and breezy wonderful in the shade. We did stop for a sugar free snowball and it was soooo good!
Johnny Winters is playing right now, but Frank and I didn't stay, we had dogs to attend to. Dan and Amber did stay to hear him play. I guess they ate the festival food for dinner: hot cajun sausage, grillades, cotton candy, Boudreaux's Daquaris and gumbo with potato salad dolloped in it. Can't get more Cajun Blues than that!
This is a great picture of the Old State Capitol. It used to be closer to the Mississippi but the river has changed course a bit and now it just sits on what appears to be a hill overlooking the river. It is stately and functions as a really great interactive history museum.
I love my camera, it does panoramic shots. And here are some nearly 360 degree panos of Baton Rouge skyline and the Mississippi River. We were standing on the River Boat Structure out in the river. What you see there is the USS Kidd from WWII.
