I just wanted to share a few photos from the first day of the 2008 Gretna Heritage Festival with you. I didn't get a chance to see everything, but I'm heading back out today to capture some more! Things kicked off with the West Bank's own Chicken on the Bone on the Market Stage: After the band finished, it was off to the Krewe of Choctaw booth for the best shrimp po-boys around. The kids had a great time checking out all of the rides and carnival-like games. The crowds were the largest I have EVER seen on a Friday night at the festival. With today's forecast including more sunshine, I'm sure that Gretna will be overflowing all day. If you get a chance, check out the booth with the sparkly fleur-de-lis and S&WB logo shirts - they are inexpensive and cute, cute, cute. Hope to see you ther...
