Yes, I am a native New Orleanian and I have never been to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. I know….shame on me. This year, we decided to make it right and head on over to Jazz Fest 2009 with Lily. The Imagination Movers were playing, and she just could NOT miss that!
After a pretty long wait, we managed to make it out to the stage and Lily was instantly engaged. The Movers put on a great show…even Moms and Dads were dancing! At the end, the Movers mentioned that Nina was in the crowd, so Lily was determined to find her. We walked everywhere and you know what? Lily found her! She also got to meet Mover Dave who was extremely nice.
Lily left that concert with stars in her eyes! We made our way over to one of the hundreds of food booths and stuffed ourselves with some of New Orleans’ best cuisine!
Next, we made our way to the Native American exhibits and watched a jaw dropping demonstration of Native American dancing. Finally, we topped the day off with some yummy snowballs!
We honestly had a blast! Click on the slideshow to see the pics from the day (including The Movers!).
