Come hungry to the Charlotte Bayou Festival



Forget about eating healthy during the Charlotte Bayou Festival. Even if you succeed in avoiding the fatty, fried stuff, you'll still be lured into a feeding frenzy by the vast assortment of edibles. A celebration of Cajun and Creole cuisine, the fest features usual suspects jambalaya, gumbo, etouffee, po' boys, alligator, frog legs and king cake, along with other Southern-styled comforts.


Music, beer and live entertainment are also offered. Leave your muck boots at home. $25. 12 p.m.-8 p.m. Independence Park, 300 Hawthorne Lane. For more information, visit
