Sept. 10, St. Martinville’s annual celebration of cultural music is held under the pavilion at the Adam Carlson Memorial Park. This year the performers are Zydeco Ray & The Creole Knight Riders, Same Ole’ Two Step and Cory & the Hot Peppers, who are replacing Lil Nathan & the Zydeco Big Timers in the line-up.
Creole food will be for sale along with beer, soda and water. There is a petting zoo and a fun jump for kids and they ask that you respectfully leave your ice chests and four-legged creatures at home.
Doors open at 10 a.m. and the park closes down at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults in advance or $10 at the door. Children get in for $3. To buy tickets or for more information call Arthur Champ at 394-4635, Paul Richard at 394-6980, Wesley Lewis at 394-6546 or Hilda Charles 394-3847.
