The Boogaloo Goes On Rain or Shine...
Founded during the evacuation of Hurricane Katrina, the Mid City Bayou Boogaloo has shown its commitment to New Orleans through rain or shine, and the 2014 festival is no different. The event is scheduled Friday (5pm-9 pm), Saturday (11 am - 9 pm), and Sunday (11 am - 8:30 pm) rain or shine. Please show your passion for the Bayou Boogaloo and all the great things New Orleans has to offer.
Hands Across the Sand is a peaceful gathering to join hands in solidarity for 10 minutes along a shoreline. We gathered on Saturday, May 17th along the shore of Bayou St. John (Riverside of the Bayou) at noon during the Bayou Boogaloo Festival. We united to hold the oil companies accountable for the degradation of our coast, and we united to say YES to a clean energy future. We encourage transportation by bicycle, walking, kayaking or carpooling.
