Quite a variety of offerings at this Food Court Vendor
We have this festival every year in May.It runs for 9 days with a parade, concerts, a big fireworks show, and of course, food. One of our favorite events is the Cajun Food Fest. A nice dinner of gumbo, red beans and rice is served up, along with some bread pudding. Later that night a local university jazz band entertains us.
This very nice young lady is presenting me with the infamous "Bayou Bonfire"Various vendors serve food from tents near the downtown convention center. Some of the food is really good, some I would think twice about trying.
The blog author attempts to tame the beast known as the "Bayou Bonfire" The author said that he would rate it 5 stars out of 5, but then again he is not known for his culinary expertise.
The sandwich was essentially a spicy sausage thing with grilled onions, peppers and okra served in some pita bread.
Cathy, a long time co-worker joined me for lunch , but she opted for a reuben sandwich.
Picnic tables are put up near the convention center and it is fun to people watch and try out the food. For people that work downtown, the fesitval gives us a chance to try out some food that is different from the local downtown eateries.
