2010 Gretna Heritage Festival Kicks Off

Gretna Heritage Festival 2010

We couldn’t have asked for better weather for the opening day of Gretna Fest this year! Sunny skies, mild temperatures and a breeze blowing off of the river that was perfect.

If I had to guess, I’d say that they broke a record for Friday night attendance.  The Krewe of Choctaw booth, where I volunteer each year, sold over 450 po-boys and I don’t know how many crawfish pies.  The folks at Hi-Do bakery are going to be kicking it into overdrive today baking extra bread for us since we figure that it will be another jam packed day.

Because the booth was so busy, I didn’t have a chance to get out and take as many pictures as I usually do, but did manage to snap a few.  Enjoy….and I hope I see you at the Fest today!
