Once again, I missed the opening of the 2010 summer concerts at the farmer’s market in Westwego. One day, I’ll get it together and be there for the first one, but in the meantime there is a great line up of fun and music scheduled all the way into July.
My favorite moment of the 2009 series was when Waylon Thibodeaux performed Matilda. Old school, but so much fun.
Each Friday evening, you can bring your lawn chair or blanket and your dancing shoes out to the market for the free concerts. Food and drink are being sold on site, so leave the ice chest at home. Family friendly and a fun way to kick off the weekend, here’s the music line up:
May 21 Michael Carballo and Esplanade
May 28 Aaron Foret
June 4 Skeeter and the Swamp Pop Band
June 11 Crescent City Hitmen
June 18 Treater
June 25 Empire Blues Band
July 2 Jr. & Sumptin Sneaky
Concerts last from 7-10 pm, but you can get there early to grab the best spots. Don’t you love living on the West Bank? Have fun!
The Farmer and Fisheries Market is located at 484 Sala Avenue, Westwego, LA
