The Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo is produced by Friends of Bayou St. John, a 501(c)(3) public charity. Boogaloo’s presenting sponsor is also a nonprofit organization, Positive Vibrations Foundation. This is not one of those corporate events where some fat cat is sitting back and getting rich! Friends of Bayou St. John focuses on the health and quality of life issues affecting the Bayou St. John neighborhood and the bayou itself. Over the years, festival proceeds have been used to replant trees along Bayou St. John and launch anti-litter initiatives. Because of the Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo, FOBSJ has also been able to donate over $120,000 directly to other community organizations working in the neighborhood and city at large.
