2011 Gretna Heritage Festival Kicks Off Today

Gretna Heritage Festival 2011

Finally!  One of my favorite weekends on the West Bank has arrived, complete with food, music, games, rides, family and friends.  The Gretna Heritage Festival opens today at 4:00 and what could make it more special for me than my husband’s band, Chicken on the Bone, kicking things off on the Old Post Office Stage (across from Gattuso’s).

We’ll be out there all weekend, soaking up the sights, the sounds, the aroma of delicious local dishes and dishing up some fantastic shrimp po-boys and crawfish pies at the Krewe of Choctaw food booth.  And don’t worry about missing the Tigers or the Saints – both games will be shown on the big screens on the festival grounds.

Here’s a taste of past festivals, just to get you in the mood….

This will be a whirlwind weekend and I hope to see you there!
