The festival will be Iko Iko un-daying on Saturday, April 5, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; free admission, but the food and beverages will cost you.
The Zydeco hullabaloo will include authentic crawfish straight from the Gulf Coast boiling all day, prepared by experts jiving up directly from Louisiana. In addition to the craw, there will be Dinosaur Bar-B-Que; Bob Barker’sJoe’s Deli; pizza, brownies and cookies from the Last Stop Bakery; and jambalaya from the Empire Brewing Company. And you know a Syracuse event wouldn’t be complete without wine and beer—but to be fair and balanced, soda will be popping as well.
In addition to the food and drinks, the stage will be set for local favorites on the music scene including the All Night Ramblers, The Fab Five and T.J. Sacco & The Electric Rodeo to keep the party rocking. And also while you’re there, learn about Operation Southern Comfort’s efforts to help rebuild Louisiana from the devastation Katrina inflicted, which has included 12 weeklong trips delivering food and supplies and also tearing down and putting up new housing for those left high and dry. More trips are scheduled for April, July and October and are open to all able-bodied adults. Call 559-9413 for more information.
