French Quarter Fest

Today ends my first French Quarter Fest. It was a lot of fun and not nearly as scary and hectic as I feared ... much the same review that I gave to Mardi Gras.

What continues to astound me with these festivals here in New Orleans is how family oriented they are. I think the only view and opinion the vast majority of the country has about New Orleans is centered on images taken from Bourbon street. Just like when watching the parades during Mardi Gras, I found myself surrounded by kids over the last couple of days. I really liked hearing the sampling of local music and even put in a request with Remy (the local NOLA nut) for an mp3 of an interesting song I heard the other night.

I am coming to really appreciate this city and its culture. I think it has a bad wrap with the rest of the country. I am not saying the "crazies" aren't here - but they don't rule the roost.
