Lower 9 Fest Official Countdown - 3 days!!!
Lower 9 Fest Countdown - 3 days!!!
It's been a year and a half in the making, but the First Annual Lower 9 Fest is only 3 days away!
As of this morning, we have 50+ community resources organizations offering health screenings, passing out information, doing activities. We have a HUGE kids' zone sponsored by Aetna, including bounce houses, a build-a-bear station, slime making, and art projects. The L9EDD Village features 35 local food, clothing, jewelry and art vendors who will be selling their merchandaise. Festival participants will also enjoy 4 hours of incredible music, including our very own L9WHA board president Tonya Boyd-Cannon (pictured above).
Everything kicks off at noon with a second-line parade led by Stooges Brass Band, Lower 9th Ward community leaders, 2022 King and Queen of Zulu, and all of our city and state elected officials.
We would love to personally invite each and every one of you to come out and celebrate the LEGACY of the Lower 9th Ward this Saturday, August 27th from 12-4 pm. View the festival details at https://www.l9wha.org/L9fest or clicking the button below.
