If you're looking for a road trip this weekend, consider the French Food Festival. Dumb name for a good Cajun festival. 20 different food dishes, all traditionally prepared by local people (no restaurants or outside vendors). This Fri, Sat, and Sun, in the little town of Larose, on Bayou Lafourche. On Sat & Sun, you can see folklike demonstrations all afternoon. All of the usual S LA festival stuff, too...rides, games, nonstop live music, etc. Free parking and free admission. See the web link below for details, directions, schedule.
